Four Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli fire on Tuesday. Palestinian sources said Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian man in the center of the West Bank city of Nablus. Witnesses said soldiers opened fire to disperse protesters throwing stones, killing a 24-year-old man and wounding a second Palestinian in the stomach.
In the Gaza Strip, Palestinians reported that Asaad Juda, 22, and Muhammad Matar, 21, were killed in the morning by Israeli tank shell east of Gaza city. Later in the day, a third Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli naval forces while "swimming towards the shores of Israel," Ynet reported. (Albawaba.com)
