Gaza Medic Killed on Border Wasn’t Intentionally Shot by Israeli Soldiers, Military Finds

Israeli soldiers did not fire directly at Razan al-Najjar, a Palestinian medic who was killed on Friday during protests on the Gaza border, a preliminary military investigation found.

Thousands of people attended the funeral of Najjar, 21, on Saturday.

The probe was based primarily on interviews with soldiers who were on the scene. As part of the inquiry, which the military said hasn’t concluded yet, the military examined who opened fire during the event and how much ammunition was used.
