June 6, 2017: Fadi Ibrahim Najjar, 25, was killed by Israeli soldiers who shot him in the stomach while he and other Palestinians were protesting on their own land. The soldiers injured at least seven other Palestinians in the Gaza Strip that day.
Fadi was shot following clashes that took place, close to the border fence, east of Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, after the soldiers fired many live rounds at Palestinians near the border fence. Another Palestinian was moderately injured in the same incident.
The soldiers also shot and moderately injured two young men, wounding them in their legs, east of Gaza city, after the army fired many live rounds at dozens of protesters on Palestinian lands close to the border fence.
Three other Palestinians were also shot with live Israeli army fire, suffering moderate wounds, east of Jabalia town, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, after the soldiers attacked Palestinians marching on their lands close to the border fence.
Clashes also took place east of the al-Boreij refugee camp in central Gaza, and the soldiers fired live rounds and gas bombs, causing at least twenty Palestinians to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation.
