Israeli Troops Killed Palestinian Medic at Gaza Protest, Official Says

(Bloomberg) -- Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian paramedic who was tending to casualties at an anti-Israel protest in the Gaza Strip on Friday, a Gaza Health Ministry official said.

Abdullah al-Qutati was the second medic killed in the field by Israeli forces since a campaign of protests began in Gaza on March 30. In all, nearly 160 Palestinians have been shot dead at the demonstrations, according to ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qedra.
