Palestinian Child Killed, 43 Injured in Gaza Protests

A Palestinian child was killed today and another 43 people were wounded, during a protest in Gaza, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Othman Rami Hilles, 15, was shot by Israeli soldiers who fired live bullets and tear gas canisters at a peaceful protest along the fence separating Gaza from Israel.

The Ministry also said that at least 43 other people were wounded.

Since Palestinians began staging mass rallies near the Gaza-Israeli fence on March 30, over 140 protesters have been killed and thousands more injured by gunfire from Israeli troops and snipers.
