Palestinian killed as Gaza protests against Israel enter 4th month

Palestinian killed as Gaza protests against Israel enter 4th month
World  - Muhammed Abu Halima, 22, was shot and killed by Israeli troops during a protest at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, bringing the death toll in the "Great March of Return" protests to 136 since they began in March.

A Palestinian taking part in border protests was killed on Friday, Gazan medical officials said, bringing to 136 the number killed in the confrontations that have often drawn a lethal Israeli army response since they began on March 30.

The Gaza Health Ministry said the 22-year-old died of a chest wound. It said Israeli shelling wounded eight people in the same location, east of Gaza City, although it was not immediately clear if the two incidents were linked.

"The explosive device went off within the Gaza Strip and injured several Palestinians," it said.

The Gaza Health Ministry said almost 400 people were wounded in Friday's protests, 57 of them from live bullets.
