The death of a Palestinian teen who succumbed to wounds inflicted by Israeli forces during last Friday’s protests along the Gaza border hit the front pages of three Arabic Palestinian dailies on Sunday, August 5..

The three West Bank daily newspapers, Al-Hayat al-Jadida, Al-Quds and Al-Ayyam, wrote that Moath Ziad al-Sory, 15, from al-Nusseirat in the central Gaza Strip, was mortally wounded when hit in the abdomen by an Israeli round during the weekly border protests on Friday, August 3. The youth was moved to a city hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Another Palestinian, Ahmad Yaghi, a 25-year-old man, was killed during the Friday protests and 220 others were injured, 90 of them by gunfire, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

These two deaths brings the total number of Palestinian killed since the start of “The Great March of Return” protests at the end of March to 157. More than 17,000 have been injured.
