Gazan killed by Israeli army

A 19-year old Palestinian was killed in a non-violent protest against an Israeli buffer zone.

    A Palestinian teenager has been shot dead by the Israeli army that opened fire on a group of Palestinians protesting against a buffer zone being built on the border between the east of the Gaza strip and Israel.

    Moaweya Hassanein, 19, was shot in the abdomen and carried to a hospital, where he died of wounds.

    An Israeli human rights group has released video footage which showed a non-violent crowd of Palestinian protesters being taken surprise by a gunshot fired by an Israeli soldier on the other side of a nearby security fence.
