DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:29 A.M)- A young Palestinian man was shot dead in Gaza, yesterday, as Egypt broker a Hamas-Israel ceasefire.
A twenty year old Palestinian man, Mohammed Abu Sherbin, was declared dead by the ‘Gaza Health Ministry’, after sustaining a fatal gunshot wound, east of Al-Maghazi refugee Camp. Mohammed was participating in the ongoing unarmed demonstrations, taking place at the separation fence between Israel and the besieged Gaza Strip.
The murder in Gaza, by Israeli Sniper fire, comes as Egypt broker a ceasefire agreement between Hamas and Israel. As part of the ceasefire agreement, Israel will lift some of its illegally imposed restrictions upon the Gaza Strip, in return for the ending of the ‘Great Return March’ demonstrations. Qatar have also vowed to pay the salaries of 50,000 Hamas members in the Gaza Strip, as part of the deal.
Since the 30th of March, approximately 250 unarmed Palestinian demonstrators have been killed by Israeli Sniper fire, another 23,000 have been injured. Israel are yet to sustain a single casualty as a result of demonstrators, the Israeli Military claim that a single soldier sustained a minor “scratch”.
