HeadlineJul 02, 2018

In Gaza, thousands of Palestinians gathered Saturday for a funeral procession for Yasser Abu al-Naja, a child shot and killed by an Israeli sniper during Friday protests near the separation fence with Israel. Israeli soldiers have killed at least 25 Palestinian children so far this year; 11 of the children were shot by Israeli snipers in the head or neck. In total, Israeli soldiers have killed at least 136 Palestinians and wounded over 14,000 more since the Palestinians’ nonviolent Great March of Return protests began on March 30.
