GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- As the fourth Friday of popular protests in the besieged Gaza Strip came to a close, Israeli forces had killed four Palestinians, including a 15-year-old who was shot in the head.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health declared that a Palestinian child, identified as Muhammad Ibrahim Ayyoub, 15, was killed by Israeli forces during protests east of Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip.

Videos of Ayyoub’s killing circulated Palestinian social media on Friday, showing the boy, hundreds of meters away from the border fence with Israel, being shot in the head by a sniper.

In the southern Gaza Strip, east of Khan Younis, Israeli forces shot 29-year-old Abd al-Majid Abd al-Aal in the neck, killing him.

Two Palestinians were shot and killed earlier in the afternoon.

The ministry reported that the number of injuries by Friday evening came to 729, including live bullets, tear-gas suffocation cases, and other wounds.
