Violence and Chaos Continue at Gaza (with Video from Israel)

Violence and Chaos Continue at Gaza (with Video from Israel)

Israeli troops fired live rounds and tear gas and Gaza health officials said at least four demonstrators were killed, including a teenage boy, with over 600 wounded - which Mansour condemned "in the strongest terms" calling the Israelis "trigger-happy".

The IDF Spokesperson Unit said, "IDF troops are reinforced along the Gaza Strip security fence in order to protect security infrastructure and defend Israeli civilians in the communities surrounding the Gaza Strip from the attempted terror attacks led by the Hamas terror organization".

It also claimed that Palestinian militants fired guns at its forces and threw grenades, as per Al Jazeera.

Thousands of Shiite Muslims marched in the capitals of Iran and Iraq on Friday to mark "Jerusalem Day", in an annual protest against Israeli rule over the holy city and show of support for the Palestinians. It is the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes to clear the way for Israel's establishment in 1948.

The Gaza clashes reached their peak on May 14, the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with the United States embassy relocation from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem al-Quds.

In a statement, Dr.al-Qedra said the soldiers have killed 127 Palestinians, and injured 14700 others, including women, children, medics and journalists, in the Gaza Strip, since the beginning of the Great Return March on Palestinian Land, on March 30, 2018.

Mohammed Abed Al Baba, who has worked for AFP in Gaza since 2000, said he was shot in the leg while wearing a clearly identified press vest and helmet around 200 metres from the border east of Jabalia in northern Gaza.

"There is no such state called Israel that could have a capital called Jerusalem", Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said, adding that the protests, which also demand an end to a grinding Israeli and Egyptian blockade on Gaza, would continue.

Israelis and Palestinians are gearing up for another mass demonstration along the fence with Gaza.

Among those wounded by gunfire was an AFP photographer and a 23-year-old man who was on life support after a tear gas canister penetrated his face, medics said.

Thousands of Palestinians are streaming toward the fence separating Gaza from Israel for a protest against the decade-long blockade of their territory.

Palestinian violence has become commonplace on the security fence, particularly after Friday-morning prayers. "I don't think that the people who run world soccer can ignore this". Israel and Hamas, which seeks Israel's destruction, have fought three cross-border wars since 2008. Statehood talks have been frozen since 2014.
