Gaza Return Protests: Palestinian Dies of Zionist Gunfire Wounds

Gaza Return Protests: Palestinian Dies of Zionist Gunfire Wounds

The troops responded with tear gas and live fire. Hundreds more were reported injured from inhaling tear gas. "Palestinian women are always at the forefront", she said proudly.

The army added that Israel will not allow any harm to security infrastructure that protects Israeli civilians, and will act against violent rioters who threaten to damage it.

It distributed a photo of "a terrorist wielding an item suspected of being an explosive device", but an AFP journalist who witnessed the event said it was a firework that did not explode.

The debate over Israel's open-fire regulations has intensified with a rising number of dead and wounded since the first protests on March 30.

In all, 27 protesters were killed and hundreds wounded by army fire since late March.

In the northern Gaza Strip, Sumaya Abu Awad, 36, attended the protest with her three daughters and son. This is significantly less than in the previous demonstrations over the past two weeks.

Tens of thousands of Gazans continue to protest at the border for the third week in a row. Smaller groups moved closer to the fence, throwing stones, torching tires and burning large Israeli flags.

Zuckerberg back on Capitol Hill for second day of testimony
I know, it's scary to think you'll suddenly be cut off from high school friends you no longer talk to in real life. However, Zuckerberg's answer to that was - "It certainly doesn't feel like that to me".

Last Sunday, Lieberman said there were "no innocent people" in the Gaza Strip-which is controlled by the militant bourgeois-Islamist group Hamas. "If we are going to die, then let it not be in vain", said Ahmed, who refused to give his full name, fearing Israeli reprisals.

The Ministry also called on the global community to take a decisive and firm stance condemning Israel's escalating violations, and to provide the urgently needed protection to the Palestinian people, and to ensure an end to the violations against the medics and all medical facilities.

Friday's protest drew thousands of people, the third large-scale demonstration along the volatile border in as many consecutive Fridays.

Organizers of the protests have said they are meant to be "nonviolent resistance".

Organisers have reiterated their call for peaceful protests. "Nakba Day" recognizes the approximately 750,000 people who left their homes in the violence leading up to and during the May 1948 war between Israel and neighboring countries.The protests, called "The March of Return", are calling for Palestinians who left Israeli areas during and around the May 1948 war and their descendants to be granted the "right to return" to those areas.

The organisers of the Great Return March say the protests are a non-partisan and peaceful call for worldwide support, yet erroneous media reports have characterised the demonstrators as "rioters" directly "clashing" with Israeli forces.
