O Mossad, serviço secreto israelense, é conhecido por seus crimes. A lista de palestinos mortos em sua campanha de assassinato sistemático de palestinos que se sobressaem no exílio é longuíssima. Suspeita-se que a última vítima desses homicidas sionistas seja Fadi al-Batsh, professor palestino de 35 anos e membro do Hamas, que, no sábado, sucumbiu instantaneamente às balas de dois atacantes desconhecidos em um bairro residencial de Kuala Lumpur, capital da Malásia onde ensinava.Israeli forces have shot dead four Palestinians, including a 15-year-old boy, as more than 10,000 gathered in a mass demonstration in the besieged Gaza Strip demanding the right of return for Palestinian refugees.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health said on Friday that at least 729 people protesting near the border with Israel were wounded by Israeli gunfire, needed treatment for tear gas inhalation or suffered other injuries.
Palestinian officials identified those killed as Mohammed Ibrahim Ayyoub, 15, Ahmed Rashad, 24, Ahmed Abu Aqil, 25 and Saad Abdul Majid Abdul-Aal Abu Taha, 29.
The mass marches, which have been backed by several Palestinian factions, are also fuelled by growing desperation among Gaza's two million residents.
The border blockade has trapped nearly all of them within the territory, gutted the economy and deepened poverty. Gaza residents typically get fewer than five hours of electricity a day, while unemployment has soared above 40 percent.
Mahjoob Zweiri, an associate professor in contemporary history of the Middle East at Qatar University, told Al Jazeera that the Israelis feared the independent "discourse of the protest movement".
