Israelis kill 1 Palestinian kid, injure 30 more in Gaza

Tehran, Feb 22, IRNA - The Israeli forces killed 1 Palestinian kid and injured 30 others during the 48th round of the ‘March of Return’ rallies in eastern Gaza Strip.

According to Palestinian media, thousands of Palestinians together with leaders of the Resistance groups attended the demonstrations.

Head of Gaza Emergency confirmed killing of a Palestinian kid, saying Yusef Saeed, 14, who was shot succumbed to injuries.

Earlier on January 22, the Israeli regime declared start of air attacks on northern Gaza on the pretext of retaliating targeting a Zionist soldier. They killed a Resistance member affiliated to Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and injured two others in an artillery attack on eastern Bureij.

The great 'March of Return' rallies culminated on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as the Nakba, or Catastrophe, a reference to the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages to clear the way for Israel's establishment in 1948.

The mass Friday demonstrations have continued since then.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed at least 2400 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded about 26,000 people, according to health officials in Gaza.
