Palestinian toddler dies from wounds in Gaza as premature Israeli baby killed after West Bank shooting

Hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza attended the funeral of a four-year-old boy who died after being injured by Israeli gunfire during a protest at the border, health officials have said.

On the same day 70 miles away a baby, who was delivered prematurely to an Israeli woman wounded in a Palestinian drive-by shooting in the West Bank, also died.
Israeli pregnant mother Shira Ish-Ran, her husband and five others were injured in an attack at a bus stop outside the illegal Israeli settlement of Ofra in the West Bank on Sunday.

“My heart, our hearts, are with Shira and Avihai at the death of a four-day-old baby who does not even have a name," Mr Netanyahu told foreign media and diplomats in a speech. "The security forces are in pursuit of the murderer."
Meanwhile in Gaza, Palestinian health officials reported that Ahmed Abu Abed, 4, had succumbed to his injuries apparently sustained by Israeli fire. He was buried in Khan Younis, at the southern end of the strip on Wednesday afternoon.
Gaza health ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qidra said he “was hit by shrapnel from Israeli gunfire” during protests near to the border fence with Israel on Friday.
Reuters footage from the protest showed the boy being carried by a medic into a field hospital not far from the border after being injured.
