Israeli Forces Kill Palestinian Man in Gaza Protest

By Middle East Eye

28 December 18

 

sraeli forces killed a Palestinian man during a demonstration in the Gaza Strip on Friday, as the Great March of Return entered its 40th week.

The Gaza ministry of health identified the slain Palestinian as 26-year-old Karam Mohammed Fayyad, saying he had been wounded east of Khan Younis earlier in the day and succumbed to his wounds in the evening.

Earlier Friday, the ministry said Israeli forces had shot and injured at least six Palestinians as of 4pm GMT, in addition to one paramedic and one journalist, who were also wounded.

Since 30 March, thousands of Palestinians in the small coastal territory have demonstrated along the boundary with Israel, demanding the implementation of Palestinian refugees’ right of return and an end to the crippling 11-year siege of Gaza.

Between 30 March and 30 November, Middle East Eye calculated that 190 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in the context of the Great March of Return. One Israeli soldier was also killed as the military has confronted the protest movement in that time.

More than 25,000 Palestinians have been wounded by Israeli forces in the same period.

The United Nations General Assembly denounced Israel’s use of force against the demonstrators as “excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate”, while many rights groups slammed it as illegal, “horrifying” and “calculated”.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

People who try to force their way across a border while using molotov cocktails and explosives are not demonstrators. any country's border defenders would shoot them.
