4 Palestinians Killed in Confrontations at the border of Gaza. Israeli soldiers killed four Palestinians, including a 16-year-old boy, in confrontations at the border with the Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Ministry of Health has informed that.
Three Palestinians perished Friday night, and a fourth later died of his injuries. There were also about 40 wounded.
According to a spokeswoman for the Israeli army, about 9,000 Palestinians had gathered at various points along the border on Friday night. They set tires on fire and threw bombs at the border fence. Israeli soldiers came into action and shot with sharpness.
Since March, more than 240 Palestinians have already been killed in protests at the border with Gaza, says the Palestinian Ministry of Health. Thousands were injured.
The protesters want Palestinian refugees to return to the area of present-day Israel. Besides, they demand that the blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has been in place for more than a decade, will be lifted.
