Israeli army kills Palestinian protester in Gaza

Since the Gaza rallies began in March last year, nearly 270 protesters have been martyred and thousands more wounded by Israeli forces

A Palestinian protester was killed and five others injured by Israeli gunfire in northern Gaza Strip on Friday, Anadolu Agency reported the Health Ministry saying.

“Alaa Nizar Hamdan, 28, was martyred in Jabalia city in the northern part of the enclave,” the ministry said.

Thousands of Palestinians on Friday flocked to the security fence to participate in the weekly anti-occupation protests, known as the Great March of Return.

Since the Gaza rallies began in March last year, nearly 270 protesters have been martyred and thousands more wounded by Israeli forces at the security fence with Gaza.

Demonstrators demand an end to Israel’s 12-year-old blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has shattered the coastal enclave’s economy and deprived its two million inhabitants of free movement in and out from Gaza and prevented many basic amenities.
