Palestinians hold funeral for man killed during Gaza protest

A funeral has been held for a Palestinian man shot dead during a protest at the fence separating the Gaza Strip from the Israeli-occupied territories.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) The body of 23-year-old Tamer Arafat was carried through the streets of Khan Younis in southern Gaza.


Israeli troops shot and killed Taamer after they opened fire on Palestinian protesters rallying near the fence. 


Gaza health authorities say more than 250 people have been killed since Palestinians launched weekly protests on March 30 last year. They are demanding the right to return to land from which their ancestors were forced to flee during Israel's creation in 1948.
