Gaza Teen Reported Dead Returns Home Alive


A Gaza teen reported by Palestinian officials as killed by Israeli troops returned home alive. Mohammed al-Farmawi, 15, reportedly had been killed Tuesday during clashes between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli troops on the Gaza border during Land Day protests.

Gaza health officials had said Farmawi was struck and left to bleed for several hours before his body was collected, according to reports.

It was reported Saturday that the teen returned home on Friday after sneaking into a smuggler tunnel in Rafah with a group of friends and trying to escape to Egypt. Farmawi was captured and held by Egyptian security officials, according to The New York Times.
