Israeli occupation forces have killed 12 Palestinian protesters and injured 666 others in occupied Palestinian territories since US President Donald Trump’s move on Jerusalem.
Palestinian ministry of health said in a report that all the 10 of the Palestinians killed by the Israeli occupation forces had been shot in the upper parts of their bodies.
Two of them, the ministry’s report said, were killed in an Israeli airstrike on a farmland in west of the Gaza City.
According to the report, thousands were lightly wounded as they were beaten or suffered suffocation due to the heavy tear gas, but the 666 were shot with live ammunition or metal-coated with rubber bullets that cause severe injuries.
In the report, the ministry of health noted that this number included 487 men, 164 children and 15 women. One of the severely wounded children was five-month-old from Gaza.
Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation forces had targeted the Palestinian paramedics 15 times, including attacks on ambulances.
The report stated that a study made for the Israeli attacks on the Palestinian paramedics found that the Israeli occupation forces aimed at to undermine rescuing wounded protesters.
