  9 Palestinians, including 3 kids, killed in Gaza

May 10, 2021
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nine Palestinians, including three children, were killed in the Gaza 
Strip on Monday, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry, /Anadolu 
Agency /reports.

"Bodies of nine martyrs, including three children, and several other 
people injured have been brought to the Beit Hanoun Hospital in the 
northern Gaza Strip," Ashraf al-Qudra, a ministry spokesperson, said in 
a statement.

While the official did not give details about how the people were killed 
or injured, there were reports circulating of Israeli attacks on 
Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

Earlier in the day, Palestinian groups shot rockets at Israeli locations 
in response to continued Israeli aggression at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and 
the eviction of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood 
in occupied East Jerusalem.

According to the Palestine Red Crescent, at least 305 people were 
injured on Monday as Israeli forces fired rubber-coated bullets, tear 
gas, and stun grenades at Palestinians who were on guard to prevent 
possible raids by extremist Jews.

The Israeli army reported that seven rockets were fired from Gaza 
towards Jerusalem.

Tensions have run high in the Sheikh Jarrah area since last week as 
Israeli settlers swarmed in after an Israeli court ordered the eviction 
of Palestinian families.

Palestinians protesting in solidarity with the residents of Sheikh 
Jarrah have been targeted by Israeli forces. Hundreds of protesters have 
been injured in the process.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and 
annexed the entire city in 1980 – a move that has never been 
recognized by the international community.
