Palestinians Say Dozens Hurt by Israeli Fire at Gaza Border

Friday, 31 August 2018 02:38 PM

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Gaza's Health Ministry says Israeli gunfire has wounded about 80 Palestinians at a weekly protest along the border with Israel.

It said Friday a female medic was critically wounded from a gunshot to the back and a 10-year-old boy seriously injured.

Hamas, the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza, vowed to continue the protests as Egyptian efforts to restore calm continue.

Since March 30, Hamas has led weekly border protests aimed in part at drawing attention to the Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed after it took control of the territory in 2007.

Since then, at least 125, mainly unarmed, protesters have been killed by Israeli fire, according to the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry and a local rights group. An Israeli soldier was killed by a Gaza sniper during this same period.
