Funerals Held for Gaza Youth Killed at Border by Israel Fire

Funerals Held for Gaza Youth Killed at Border by Israel Fire

Saturday, 28 July 2018 09:37 AM

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Gaza's Health Ministry says a Palestinian teen has died of wounds sustained by Israeli gunfire at a border protest as thousands attended the funeral of an 11-year-old killed in that demonstration.

The ministry said 17-year-old Moumin al-Hams, succumbed Saturday to wounds sustained the day before.

Gaza's militant Hamas rulers have led weekly protests aimed in part at drawing attention to the Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed after it took control of the territory in 2007.

Over 140, mostly unarmed, Palestinians have been killed since protests began.

Israel says it is defending its border and accuses Hamas of using protests as cover for attempts to breach the border and for attacks.

Funerals were held Saturday for Majdi al-Satari, 11, whose age was previously announced as 14, and for Ghazi Abu Mustafa, 43, killed at Friday's rally.
