Palestinian baby dies from tear gas inhalation: ministry

Israeli forces shot Jamal Afaneh 15 in the head with live ammunition near Rafah on May 11. He was pronounced dead the following day

The baby's body was wrapped in a Palestinian flag and buried on Tuesday.

Speaking to the Associated Press, a doctor in Gaza suggested Leila may have suffered a pre-existing medical condition that contributed to her death.

"We also call on all parties to show restraint and urge all protests to remain peaceful, while calling on all sides to tackle the long-term causes of this conflict and promote dignity and security for both Israelis and Palestinians".

More violence was expected amid simmering tensions last night on the day that marked the 70th anniversary of the start of the first war between the newly created Jewish state and its Arab neighbours in 1948.

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.

The mother of 8-month-old Palestinian infant Laila al-Ghandour cries after her daughter was killed.

Close to the border he eventually found his mother Heyam and handed Leila over to her.

He termed the recent Israeli killings as "inhuman" and "shameful", adding that the day Israeli forces killed dozens of Palestinians along the Gaza fence should be called "Black Monday". Within minutes they were engulfed in tear gas. "We got away from the gas and gave Leila to my sister and went looking for two other children so we could leave". I thought she was sleeping.' But when her skin turned blue, they took her to hospital, where doctors said she had been dead for an hour.

"Parents of those who have been injured tell us they don't know how to support their children", said Jennifer Moorehead, Save the Children's Occupied Palestinian Territory Country Director.

The Israeli military said at least 24 of those killed on Monday were "terrorists with documented terror background" and a lot of them were active operatives of Hamas.

Tens of thousands of Palestinians rallied near the border fence on Monday, with smaller numbers seeking to breach it and clashes erupting.

"Starting tomorrow, the United Nations, together with global partners will need to focus and redouble efforts to implement projects that will have an immediate impact on improving the electricity, water and health situation as a matter of urgency", he said.

Israel's use of live fire has drawn worldwide criticism but the Israeli government says it is protecting its borders.
