“During the riots IDF soldiers fired selectively toward two main instigators and hits were confirmed” – with these words Reuters nonchalantly reports the killing of at least one, possibly two protestors in the besieged Gaza Strip today.
The death of Mahmoud Abdulmajid al-Masri, aged 28 or 30 has been confirmed. A video of his shooting exists and has been seen by us (because of problems with videos on WordPress we are experiencing we can’t link it here), and his body has been photographed on the morgue and are seen below.
He was shot east of Khan Younis on the besieged coastal enclave, during clashes that no way threatened the safety of the occupation forces’ soldiers, who were behind a fence.
Another death has been reported, but has not yet been verified.
35 people have been wounded in the Gaza Strip today and 245 people have been wounded in the occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank.
