|Subject: Palestinian man shot during peaceful anti-wall march south of Gaza Mon Sep 27, 2010 2:55 am|| |
A Palestinian man was shot by Israeli troops east of Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical sources said on Sunday.
A 20-year-old man was shot in the torso by Israeli soldiers stationed at the east Khan Younis city line while participating in a peaceful march against the separation wall in the town of Absan east of Khan Younis, Palestinian medical services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya told the Palestinian Information Center.
Sources said he was taken to the hospital for treatment while in moderate condition.
The march, which was kicked off by the popular campaign against the wall blockade, was set off in part by representatives of the national labor committee, foreign supporters, and dozens of Palestinians.
In a separate incident, Israeli forces cracked down on an anti-settlement march in the south Nablus town of Burin on Sunday. Several Palestinians sustained minor suffocation after inhaling tear gas soldiers fired at them.
The army fired stun grenades and gas at marchers as the military declared the town of Burin a closed military zone.
Burin residents stage the weekly march to voice out against settler attacks and Israel’s seizure of the village’s land to expand settlement areas.
