Palestinians killed, 248 injured in Israel-Gaza border clashes: medics”

Saheeb Abu Kashef, 16, died late Saturday after being shot on August 3 east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, according to the ministry, AFP reported on Sunday.

"The Great March of Return" protests were launched by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza - which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege - who took to the borders to demand their right of return as refugees to their orignial homelands, now in present-day Israel.

Chadi Abdel Aal was mortally wounded east of Jabalia, in the northern Gaza strip, becoming one of the youngest victims in the almost six months of confrontations between Gazans and israeli soldiers.

On Saturday, a friend who was with him at the time said they were throwing stones at the border fence when Abdel Aal was hit by a tear gas grenade fired by Israeli soldiers and collapsed instantly.

The death of a 12-year-old Palestinian boy became contested as the IDF Arabic-language spokesperson claimed the child died due to a rock thrown by violent protesters on Friday, and called on Hamas to respond to the claims. The boy is the youngest fatality from Israeli gunfire.

One Israeli soldier has been shot dead by a sniper.

The Jewish state maintains a crippling blockade on Gaza which it says is necessary to isolate Hamas, with whom it has fought three wars since 2008.

Meanwhile, a Palestinian fatally stabbed an Israeli-American man near the entrance to a mall in the occupied West Bank yesterday before being shot and wounded at the end of a brief foot chase, officials said.

Fuld, a 45-year-old father of four and passionate pro-Israel activist was murdered by a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist, while shopping for groceries outside the Rami Levy supermarket in the Gush Etzion region of Judea.

Current and former United States ambassadors to Israel offered high praise in honor of an Israeli father of four murdered in a terror attack on Sunday.

The Mexico City prosecutors' office said at least one foreigner was among those wounded in Friday night's attack, which local media said was staged by three gunmen.

The Palestinians want to establish a state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.
