(7 Jul 2018) Hundreds of mourners marched through the streets of Gaza on Saturday during a funeral procession for Mohammad Abu Halema, who was killed by Israeli fire at a border protest on Friday. Witnesses said the 22-year-old was shot as protesters rushed the fence. Gaza's Health Ministry said that 24 other people had also been injured at the protest. Israel's military said militants tried to throw an explosive device at soldiers near the border. It said their bomb exploded inside Gaza and injured several Palestinians. The Islamic militant group Hamas that rules Gaza has led months of border protests. Over 125 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since they began. Israel says it is defending its border and accuses Hamas of using the protests as cover for attempts to breach the fence and carry out attacks. The rallies are aimed in part at drawing attention to the Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed after Hamas seized Gaza in 2007.
