GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – A young Palestinian man died late Friday of wounds he sustained hours earlier by Israeli gunfire east of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Palestinian medics confirmed Saturday that 21-year-old Mahmoud Jaroun was hit by a gunshot to the pelvis Friday evening, and was evacuated to Abu Yousif An-Najjar Hospital in Rafah before medics announced his death around midnight.

On Friday, 11 Palestinians sustained wounds by Israeli fire along the borders between the Gaza Strip and Israel.

Asked about Friday's shootings, an Israeli military spokeswoman said Palestinians had come up to the fence to vandalize it. Soldiers warned them away, and when that did not deter them, shot at their legs, she said.

Palestinians described the incident as a demonstration, saying that six people were wounded by the Israeli gunfire.

Since a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip was brokered by Egypt, Israeli forces have breached it several times firing at farmers near the border.

Two Palestinians have been shot dead so far and about 40 have been injured.

The Israeli navy has also detained dozens of Gaza fishermen, although Israel agreed to allow Gaza fishermen to go six nautical miles off the coast instead of three.

The Palestinian people have EVERY RIGHT 2B on that land.The IOF doesn't! Israeli 'warning' shots aim for the FEMORAL artery,to cause bleed-out,crippling &/or death,of UNARMED civilians protesting the occupation of their OWN land. If IOF can't"break the bones"with rocks,they do it with BULLETS/gas cannisters! SHAME ON U,Obama,Clinton,Rice&your incestuous Repub.cohorts!Our US 'Foreign Policy' poison,is a criminal LIABILITY to the Nat.Sec. of our USA,the world & ISRAEL! Peace over BLOOD-PROFITS!

It seems clear that Israel must face the ICC for the war crimes committed against the unarmed people of Palestine. This genocide and illegal settlement of Palestine is over and the world is sick of it. I am very proud of all Palestinians who are moving onto the world stage with such dignity despite the holocaustum, committed by Israel, against them.

Shot for being Palestinian? No, shot for Palestinian resources. Israelis don't care that they are Palestinian: they could be anyone in the way of Israeli avarice. Israel wants to re-ignite the troubles in Gaza to claim more land and resources. See this article: http://www.middle-east-online.com/english/?id=55830

#5 - I have just read the article you recommended. Thank you so much for bringing this topic to our attention. I urge everyone to read it. Ironically, earlier today, someone asked why fishermen were being harrassed and I replied that Israel was intent on stealing the gas off Gaza waters, but as yet it has not been published. So now we have a clearer insight as to why Israel is so hell-bent on destroying Gaza and the people of Gaza!
