Mourners hold funeral for Palestinian killed in Gaza protest

Palestinians have held a funeral procession for a man shot and killed by Israeli forces during weekly protests along the border with Israel.

The body of Ahmed Al Karra was carried through the streets of Khan Younis draped in a Hamas flag while crowds chanted “God is the greatest.”

Gaza health officials reported that Al Karra was killed during the protests which saw thousands of Palestinian gathered along the frontier with Israel, with 40 others wounded throughout the day. It was the first fatality in a few weeks, with Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations working to keep the border calm.

Gaza officials say about 210 Palestinians have been killed since the weekly protests began more than a year ago.
