Palestinian youth shot, killed by Israeli forces in eastern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian youth in eastern Gaza City on Monday noon.

Spokesperson of the Gaza Ministry of Health identified the youth as Sabri Ahmad Abu Khader, 24, adding that he was shot and injured at the eastern borders of the city and was then transferred to the al-Shifa Hospital for treatment where his injury was first reported as critical before he succumbed to his wounds.

Several youths had arrived on Monday morning to the return camp in eastern Gaza City to protest as part of the "Great March of Return" before Israeli forces deployed at the border opened fire at them.

The weeks-long civilian protest was initially planned to end on May 15, the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or “catastrophe,” when over 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly expelled from their homes and made refugees with the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.

However, protests have continued since, and are expected to continue into the coming weeks.

Israel has come under widespread international condemnation for its use of excessive force and live ammunition against unarmed protesters.
