Israel kills Palestinian allegedly trying to breach Gaza border

Howard TerryJun 08, 2018

Up to 120 Palestinian protesters have been killed by Israeli fire since the rallies known as the "Great March of Return" started on March 30.

The Palestine News Agency (WAFA) quoted Palestinian government spokesman Yousef Al-Mahmoud describing the Israeli plans as "an act of robbery and banditry".

Israel, which collects the Palestinian tax revenues on behalf of the Palestinian Authority, announced plans to compensate Israeli farmers in the Gaza area peripheries whose fields were burnt by Palestinian action.

An axe that the army says had been in the possession of a Palestinian man who tried to cross into Israeli territory from the southern Gaza Strip before being shot dead by IDF troops on June 4, 2018.

Since April, tens of thousands of people have protested the Israeli-Egyptian blockade of Gaza and have demanded the right to return to land that now sits inside Israel. Some 17 people had sailed off the coast of Gaza with the intention of reaching Cyprus, before Israel forces intercepted the boat and transferred it to the Israeli port of Ashdod.

The protests have largely been orchestrated by Hamas, the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza.

Hours later, residents in Gaza said Israeli aircraft struck at least three training camps belonging to Hamas, the Islamist group that controls the enclave.

The protests resumed last Friday, with thousands of Palestinians taking part in what the Israeli military described as violent riots along the security fence, burning tires and throwing stones.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed the incident to Ma'an, saying that Israeli forces prevented an "attempted infiltration by two terrorists armed with an axe" by opening fire on the Palestinians, killing one of them.

This was the scene that Ms Razan dashed into.

United Nations officials condemned the killing of Najjar, saying that witness reports indicated she wore clothing that clearly identified her as a health worker.
