GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – The Gaza Health Ministry says a Palestinian journalist shot by Israeli troops while covering a demonstration on the Gaza-Israel border has died of his wounds.
Ahmed Abu Hussein was wounded in the abdomen on April 13. Photos and video from the scene show that he was in a group of bystanders far from the border and wearing a blue jacket and helmet marked “TV” when he was shot.
Hussein was working for “Voice of People” — a radio station linked to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, considered a terrorist group by Israel, the U.S. and the EU.
Israeli fire has killed 35 protesters, including two journalists, during a month of border protests.
Israel says it only aims at “instigators,” but video from some shootings contradicts that claim.
