Palestinians killed by Israeli gunfire during protests in Gaza
RT Published on Sep 7, 2019
Gaza's health authorities say two Palestinians, including a teenager, have been killed by Israeli gunfire. The deaths came as thousands of Palestinians held protests Friday at several sections of the Israel-Gaza perimeter fence.
Gaza's Hamas rulers have launched the weekend protests in March 2018 to demand easing of an Israeli-Egyptian blockade that has crippled the territory since 2007. More than 200 Palestinians and an Israeli soldier have been killed during the marches, which have subdued in recent months after mediators brokered an unofficial cease-fire.
