In the Gaza Strip, Israeli forces shot and killed seven Palestinians Friday as they protested near Israel’s heavily militarized separation barrier. Gaza’s Health Ministry reported more than 250 others were wounded as Israeli troops opened fire with live ammunition on some 15,000 Palestinians who joined weekly “Great March of Return” protests. The latest deaths bring the number of Palestinians killed to over 200 since the protests began in March.
