One 12-year old protester, Shadi Abdulaal, was killed in the Israeli shooting, and 44 more protesters, including nine children, were injured. Doctors at the Indonesia and Al-Awda hospitals stated the casualties ranged in severity from moderate to serious. 16 of these injured protesters were wounded by live fire, and 27 were directly hit by tear gas canisters.
