A Bedouin teenager - Ahmed Salama Eid Abu Hashish, 18 - from the border area east of Beit Hanoun has been missing since 21st April, 2009. His family believe that he may have been killed in the "buffer zone" - an area of Gaza next to the border that Israeli soldiers attempt to prohibit access to by shooting at people. Tomorrow Sunday 14th June his family, along with members of The Local Initiative from Beit Hanoun, and volunteers from the International Solidarity Movement - Gaza Strip will attempt to search for his body in this area.
The ISM is aware of 18 people who have been injured by Israeli gunfire or shelling whilst working in fields close to the border (in addition to 3 Palestinians killed) since the "cease-fire" in January.
