Palestinian teen Bassel al-Helo winced in pain as he rolled over in a hospital bed Sunday, after having been shot by Israeli soldiers during a protest on the Gaza-Israel border.At least 18 Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded when a mass protest near the border led to clashes, according to Gaza's Health Ministry, in the deadliest single day in the territory since a 2014 war with Israel.Some of the injured admitted to AFP that they were at the front throwing stones at soldiers, while others said they were struck seemingly at random. They felt they had little to lose because of dire poverty in Gaza and that they would return to protest once they had recovered.The Palestinian movement Hamas that rules Gaza and has fought three wars with Israel since 2008 has said five of the dead were members of its armed wing.
