GAZA, Sept, 2 - On Thursday evening, a Palestinian young man has been martyred and 15 others, including 5children, injured after the Israeli occupation forces suppressed nighttime confusion activities along the border areas of the Gaza Strip, the Gaza Ministry of Health announced.

The young man identified as Ahmed Salih (26) succumbed to his wounds to the abdomen in the northern Gaza Strip, the Health Ministry said.

5 persons were shot by live bullets (one of them is serious for a child east of Rafah and 4 others are moderate), in addition to 10 mild injuries out of shrapnel and tear gas canisters, the Ministry added.

Thousands of young people demonstrated yesterday evening at five border points along the separation fence between the Gaza strip and the occupied nearby territories of Palestine.

The occupation forces opened fire with automatic weapons and fired gas and sound bombs at the participating young men, and the media crews who were covering the event.
