Palestinian man dies of wounds after being shot by Israel troops


A Palestinian man died on Saturday after he was shot by Israeli troops while fishing on the beach in the Gaza Strip, said Hamas officials, while an Israeli military spokeswoman said the man was shot when he approached the border fence.

Israeli army patrols deem the Gaza border area off limits because militants try to attack them by planting explosive devices or shooting at them.

Officials from Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, which rules the coastal enclave, said the 22-year-old man was fishing with his brother on Friday when he was shot.

Initially, his wounds were not thought to be life threatening.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said two men came right up to the border fence and ignored calls from troops to back away before they were shot at.

Local residents said the man, who was buried on Saturday, was known to be a fisherman.

    Like Rasheeda, my blood boils HOT when reading this. And it happens in Illegally besieged Palestine/Gaza daily.

    My thoughts and prayers for this young man and his family. 22 short years of life, lived entirely under the brutal israeli occupation, ended for no reason except israelijewish racism.
