March 30, 2018: Mohammad Kamel Najjar, 25, was killed by Israeli soldiers who fired dozens of live rounds at hundreds of Palestinian protesters, nonviolently marching near the border fence, east of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRC) has reported that the soldiers killed Mohammad with live fire, and injured at least ninety others, including three who suffered serious wounds, in several parts of the Gaza Strip.
The soldiers also killed another Palestinian, Amin Mahmoud Moammar, 38, from Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, also after shooting him with live fire.
The PRC added that at least 54 Palestinians were shot with live fire, and dozens suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.
Among the wounded Palestinians are ten, including a young woman, who were shot with live fire, east of the Zeitoun neighborhood, southeast of Gaza city.
At least seven Palestinians were shot with live fire, east of Khan Younis, in southern Gaza Strip, 4 in nearby Rafah, and were rushed to Nasser Hospital, the European Hospital and Abu Yousef Najjar Hospital, while dozens more suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.
Reports from the Red Crescent in Gaza revealed that the soldiers shot with live fire 10 Palestinians in Gaza city, 20 in Jabalia, 8 in Deir al-Balah, 12 in Rafah, and seven in Gaza Younis.
The reports do not include many Palestinians, who are receiving treatment in field clinics, which were installed in several parts of the Gaza Strip.
The injuries and fatalities took place in six areas in the besieged Gaza Strip, after thousands of Palestinians marched on their lands, marking the Palestinian Land Day, and protesting the ongoing Israeli occupation of Palestine, including Jerusalem.
Earlier on Friday morning, the soldiers fired tank and artillery shells at Palestinian farmers, east of the Al-Qarara area, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, killing one, identified as Omar Wahid Nasrallah Sammour, 27, and seriously wounding another.
On Thursday evening, the Palestinians installed tents 700 meters away from the fence, east of Gaza city, while medics installed mobile clinics, especially since the army is preparing to use live ammunition against the nonviolent protesters.
The army also infiltrated cellular networks in Gaza, especially phones owned by organizers of the processions, and tried to provide false information regarding places of protests. Mohammad was from Tal az-Za’tar area, in northern Gaza. Source: IMEMC
