Teen dies of wounds sustained at Gaza war demo

Nablus - A Palestinian teenager wounded in clashes with the Israeli army three days ago died of his injuries on Monday, medical and security sources said.

Hassan Ashur, aged 14, was shot in the abdomen with live fire as protesters clashed with Israeli troops at Beit Furik, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, Palestinian sources told AFP.

Ashur's health rapidly deteriorated over the weekend, and he died Monday morning in hospital.

Israel's army had no immediate comment on the incident.

Palestinians have staged regular protests in the West Bank since Israel began its Gaza assault on 8 July, and troops have responded in many cases with live fire, according to Palestinian security officials.

At least 20 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank since the start of the Gaza operation, according to UN figures.

A few days ago it was reported that Hamas had claimed responsibility for kidnapping and murdering the 3 Israeli teens, which sparked the current war. The exact translation of what the Hamas official said is as follows, "There are those who say that it was your brothers in the al-Qassam Brigades, who carried it out for the sake of al-Qassam members who are in jails and who sit in a hunger strike". . . this translation is according to timesofisrael.com (an Israeli website) Key words are, "there are those who say". These words do not accept responsibility. Looks like almost every news channel had quoted out of context, and stated that Hamas had claimed responsibility. As far as i understand, they still deny responsibility.

"Allah commands us to rule Gwoza by Islamic law. In fact, he commands us to rule the rest of the world, not only Nigeria, and now we have started." Thats what Abubakar Shekau of Bok Haram said in an interview today.

We hope that Palestinians will be free from the oppression they continue to suffer daily and the murder of the innocent civilians will not be in vain.
