Family in Agony After Baby Dies From Tear Gas at Gaza Protest

Gaza's Al-Shifa Hospital 'On Brink Of Collapse' As Injuries Mount

Later, an unnamed medical doctor said Tuesday that the baby had a pre-existing medical condition and that he did not believe her death was caused by tear gas.

The family prefers to focus on who fired the gas rather than the series of decisions that led to a baby being a few hundred meters from the Israeli border during the protests and clashes.

Traditionally, May 15th is the day Palestinians mark the "Nakba" or "Catastrophe".

On Tuesday, journalists and family members waited for their dead in Gaza's al-Shifa Hospital, as surgeons rushed to treat injured protesters in overflowing operating rooms, while other patients lined the corridors.

In addition, Israeli drones fired gas bombs at the tents of the Return Camp, including medical tents, in Khuza'a town, east of the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis. Monday was one of the deadliest days we have seen since the 2014 war, with six children killed and more than 220 children hurt, including more than 150 who were shot by live ammunition, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza.

It was not immediately clear how close to the border fence Ghandour and her family were. 'We got away from the gas.

"She drank juice but was crying a lot".

"Let her stay with me, it is too early for her to go", Laila's mother reportedly cried as she held her daughter's body, which was wrapped in a Palestinian flag.

"They did not have mercy on a girl, they threw gas bombs at her, they killed her with tear gas". Heyam added: 'The doctor told me she was martyred.' The shootings came amid worldwide uproar over the Israeli military's use of deadly force against unarmed protesters.

On Monday, tens of thousands of Palestinians rallied near Israel's border fence to protest a blockade of their territory and the move of the US Embassy to contested Jerusalem that day. The PM said the violence was "destructive to peace efforts".

Another serious shortcoming in the article is that the repeated description of the riots and clashes as "protests", along with the reference to worldwide criticism of what the AP calls "Israel's use of lethal force against unarmed protesters" and the absence of reference to the molotov cocktails, guns, knives, axes, wire cutters, explosives, and arsonist kites, is a complete distortion of the nature of the Hamas-led activity at the fence.
