Palestinian baby dies from tear gas inhalation at Gaza border

Palestinian baby dies from tear gas inhalation at Gaza border”

Leila was believed to be the youngest victim of Monday's bloodbath and one of eight children under 16 who were reportedly among 58 Palestinians killed in demonstrations.

"They did not have mercy on a girl, they threw gas bombs at her, they killed her with tear gas".

It was the deadliest day since the 2014 Gaza War.

Last month, Amnesty International said many injured Gazans had suffered extreme bone and tissue damage from Israeli gunshots, and with a high number of wounds to the knees, that Israeli forces were deliberately shooting to inflcit life-changing injuries.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on residents across the occupied West Bank to hold a general strike on Tuesday in honour of those killed in the Gaza Strip.

Similarly, 26-year-old Youssef al-Maqal, who suffered head injuries, says nothing could have stopped him from his right to resist the Israeli occupation.

The picture of slingshot demonstrator Saber al-Ashkar, 29, emerged on social media yesterday.

Health officials in Gaza said two more Palestinians were killed by Israeli gunfire during protests near the border in Gaza yesterday.

At least 60 Palestinians were killed throughout the course of the day.

There have been reported Palestinian attempts to cross the border into Israel, while protesters have also thrown rocks, set tires ablaze and flown kites over the border wall, which have at times had flammable materials attached.

A Palestinian baby died as a result of inhaling tear gas during clashes along the Israel-Gaza border, the health ministry announced on Tuesday.

Although the baby's family blames Israeli forces, an unnamed doctor told reporters the child had a pre-existing condition. "Even after I've lost my leg I'll go back to the border", said the unemployed father of four.

Close to the border he eventually found his mother Heyam and handed Leila over to her. They stayed only a few minutes, Heyam insisted, before tear gas rained down on them.

"I could barely breathe", she said. She was crying a lot, then she went silent. I thought she was sleeping.' But when her skin turned blue, they took her to hospital, where doctors said she had been dead for an hour. They often can not afford the medicines or medical bills for follow up care and extremely anxious about their children's futures - which they say were already being steadily eroded by more than 10 years of Israeli blockade, falling donor interest.

"Starting tomorrow, the United Nations, together with global partners will need to focus and redouble efforts to implement projects that will have an immediate impact on improving the electricity, water and health situation as a matter of urgency", he said.
