RNA - The new statistics came after three Palestinian civilians were gunned down by Israeli forces during the Gaza border protests on Friday, WAFA reported.

 

They included a medic, bringing the total number of medics Israeli forces have killed since March 30 to three, said the ministry.

 

It said that among the wounded, many from tear gas inhalation, 370 were medics. In addition, 70 ambulances were damaged.

 

The ministry said that the type of injuries caused on Friday show that the Israeli army shot directly at people with the intention to kill since the injuries were caused by various types of ammunition and aimed at sensitive and deadly parts of the body.

 

It said that among the 307 injured on Friday, 28 were children, five were medics and two were journalists. Five of the injured are still in critical condition, said the ministry.
