RAMALLAH, The UN office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs (OCHA) said in its weekly report that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) killed one Palestinian in the Gaza Strip and wounded 14 Palestinians in the West Bank last week compared to 49 Palestinians injured the week before.
During the period between April 28 and the fourth of May, OCHA recorded nine Israeli settler-related incidents either leading to the injury of Palestinians or to the damage of Palestinian property, along with other incidents of intimidation and harassment.
The same number of settler-related incidents happened the previous week, it noted.
In the Gaza Strip, the Israeli troops shot dead a 19-year-old Palestinian civilian and injured one foreigner during a peaceful protest against Israeli restrictions on Palestinian access to agricultural lands in the “buffer zone” area along the border with Israel, the report added.
