Mourners gathered on Saturday, May 11, for the funeral of a man shot and martyred by Israeli forces on Friday during weekly protests on the Gaza border.

According to Press TV, health officials in Gaza said 30 other people were wounded by live gunfire during the protest, in which thousands participated, including the martyred 24-year-old Abdullah Abdelal.
