GAZA, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- One Palestinian was killed and several others wounded on Monday during clashes between hundreds of demonstrators and Israeli soldiers in northern Gaza Strip, medics said.
Ashraf al-Qedra, Health Ministry spokesman in Gaza, said that Mohamed Abu Obada, 27 years old, was shot dead in the anti-Israel weekly protests in northwestern Gaza Strip, close to the border with Israel.
He said that dozens injured by gunfire and others suffered suffocation after inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli soldiers at Palestinians demonstrating on the beach.
Several fishing boats also sailed off the northern cost of the enclave, together with the protest on the beach of Gaza close to the border with Israel, which takes place every Monday.
The protests on Monday and the marches on Friday are part of the "Great March of Return" event that started on March 30, which call on Israel to end around 12 years of a tight blockade that deteriorated the daily living situation in the territory.
Al-Qedra said that since the start of the marches, the Israeli army forces have killed 217 Palestinians and wounded 23,000 others.
