HeadlineSep 09, 2019

In Gaza, Palestinians mourned the deaths of two Palestinian teenagers shot and killed Friday by Israeli forces during weekly protests along the separation barrier with Israel. At least 70 protesters were wounded — more than half of those by Israeli gunfire — according to Gaza health officials. Palestinians have now been demonstrating for 18 months in Gaza under the banner of the Great March of Return, calling for the right to return and an end to Israel’s blockade on the besieged territory.
