State of Palestine: IDF shoots six dead as Palestinians clash with Israeli forces *GRAPHIC*

At least six Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli security forces and more than 20 injured in clashes that took place in the Gaza Strip on Friday, with the casualties being treated at Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. The casualties were named as Ahmed al-Hirbawi, Shadi Dawla and Abed al-Wahidi, who were all twenty years old and were shot dead after they threw stones at Israeli troops on Gaza's eastern border. The fourth and fifth victims were two teenagers named as Mohammed al-Raqab and Khan Yunis. One victim is yet to named. The outbreak of violence in Gaza comes as clashes in the West Bank have escalated, with multiple fatal stabbing attacks being carried out against both Palestinians and Israelis following clashes at Al-Aqsa Mosque flashpoint last month. According to the Red Cross medical agency, at least 900 Palestinians have been injured throughout the West Bank and Jerusalem in seven consecutive days of protests and clashes with Israeli security forces.
