BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – Gaza City was grieving on Friday, as the al-Shifa Hospital received a wheelchair-bound man with no legs who was shot by Israeli troops, during clashes which killed two and injured over 100.
The 29 year old Ibrahim Abu Thuraya was transported to the hospital premises, but they were unable to save his life.
According to the Palestinian health ministry, he was killed shortly after another man nearby was killed in similar circumstances. According to local media, Thuraya lost his legs during an Israeli assault in 2008 when 1,400 Palestinians were reportedly killed in 22 days.
The al-Shifa hospital was treating a number of wounded people from Friday’s clashes, which took place during a demonstration against US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
