“A Palestinian man was killed by Israeli gunfire on Thursday night, Gaza health officials said, during a violent protest along the Israeli border [sic]. Hundreds of Palestinians took part in protests held at five locations, demanding an end to Israel’s 14-year blockade of Gaza. The territory’s Hamas rulers have organized a series of similar protests over the past two weeks. In some cases they have turned violent, with the crowds burning tires and hurling explosives toward Israeli soldiers. Palestinian health officials said Ahmad Saleh, 26, was fatally shot near Jabaliya, in the northern Gaza Strip.” (09/02/21)
