Israeli forces kill 4 Palestinians in Gaza, 1 in West Bank

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israeli forces shot dead five Palestinian youths Friday, four in Gaza protests and one in the West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. In Gaza, the deadly escalation followed two prior weekly protests along the perimeter fence with Israel that saw no fatalities. The bloodshed is likely to complicate the mission of Egyptian mediators, who intensified their shuttle diplomacy to achieve calm and prevent a full-blown conflict between Gaza’s Hamas rulers and Israel.
