Israeli Troops Kill 2 Palestinians on Gaza Border

GAZA – Two Palestinians, one of them 14 years old, were killed and at least 15 others wounded by Israeli gunfire Friday during the latest installment of what have become weekly protests along Gaza’s border with Israel, Palestinian medical officials said.

A spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces told EFE that some protesters hurled firebombs at IDF troops.

Friday’s deaths brought to 166 the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli fire since the weekly border demonstrations began March 30 as part of “the Great March of Return,” according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

The Great March of Return was launched to highlight the right of Palestinian refugees and their descendants – who make up around two- thirds of Gaza’s population, according to the United Nations – to return to their homes inside what is now Israel.

Israel accuses Hamas, the Islamist movement that has controlled Gaza since 2007, of using the protests as a cover to damage the border fence, infiltrate Israeli territory and launch attacks.
