Israel probing Palestinian protester’s fatal shooting


April 28, 2010 | 3:15 pm

Israel’s military is investigating the shooting of a Palestinian protester.

Israeli troops shot at the feet of dozens of protesters who had gathered Wednesday morning at the buffer zone between the eastern Gaza Strip and Israel to plant Palestinian flags. Palestinians are barred from coming within 300 years of the Gaza-Israel border, according to Haaretz.

Palestinian sources told reporters that one of the bullets shot a Palestinian protester, 20, in the stomach. The man died of his injury, according to reports.

In recent months, Palestinian terrorists have planted explosives near the border in order to harm Israeli troops.
