Palestinian baby dies from tear gas inhalation: ministry

The ministry did not say how Layla Al Ghandour was exposed to the tear gas.

It was the deadliest day in Gaza since a 2014 war between Israel and Gaza's ruling Hamas. At least 2,700 were said to be injured.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on residents across the occupied West Bank to hold a general strike on Tuesday in honour of those killed in the Gaza Strip.

The UN Secretary General has called for an independent investigation after the Israeli response to protests was deemed excessive by the European Union, aid agencies and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The picture of slingshot demonstrator Saber al-Ashkar, 29, emerged on social media yesterday.

CAMERA's Israel office yesterday prompted improved Associated Press coverage of the Palestinian destruction of the pipeline at Kerem Shalom crossing that provides gas and fuel to Gaza's residents.

Then as violence engulfed the protest all along the Gaza border fence and the air grew thick with tear gas, they realised that her skin had turned yellow and rushed her to the nearest hospital.

Later, an unnamed medical doctor said Tuesday that the baby had a pre-existing medical condition and that he did not believe her death was caused by tear gas.

"My little brother took her and went to the border", she said.

He eventually found his mother close to the border and handed Leila over to her. Within minutes they were engulfed in tear gas.

"The responsibility for these tragic deaths rests squarely with Hamas".

'I could barely breathe, ' Heyam said. 'We got away from the gas.

At first, the baby's parents thought she was merely sleeping. "They told me she had been dead more than an hour", Heyam said.

"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.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said peaceful protests were "being exploited by extremists". Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the United Nations, said on Monday the country has acted with "restraint".

The protesters are demanding that refugees and their descendants be allowed the right to return to their former family homes, which now lie on the other side of the border fence, inside Israel.
