IOF shoots a child in Gaza

altGaza, July 14, (Pal Telegraph) A child was shot by Israeli occupation forces today near the Beit Hanoun crossing in northern Gaza Strip.
The director of emergency sector in Gaza’s hospitals, Dr. Muawiya Hassanein, said that the child Ahmaid Ahmed Obaid (13 years) was shot in the hand, following the open fire that was conducted by Israeli soldiers when they fired a hail of bullets at workers collecting scrap metal near the crossing.
He pointed out that the child was taken to Kamal Adwan Hospital for medical procedures needed.
Life’s hardship and difficult economic conditions push residents of the Gaza Strip, including boys to collect scrap and aggregates in areas near to the border to sell them and provide a living for themselves and their families, risking their lives.
