Palestinian Dead

At least two Palestinians were killed and many more injured in clashes with Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) during protests along the border with Gaza on Friday, a Palestinian medical official said. Ashraf Al-Qidra, spokesman for the Gaza Health Ministry, said that two men, aged 18 and 26, died after being shot in the stomach.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that the officers had fired warning shots in the air beforehand. At least 147 Palestinians have been killed since October, with Israeli authorities claiming that 93 of them had been attackers, Reuters reported.
