UN secretary general calls for 'transparent' investigation — Gaza clashes

Shelling kills Palestinian in Gaza ahead of border protest

We hold the Trump administration, which has given Israeli leaders the green light to carry out such atrocities, equally responsible for the latest horrific attack.

We are closely following the horrifying news from Gaza this morning. "Violence furthers neither of those goals", she added. Write to us in the Comments Section or on our Facebook page.

Israel had threatened a tough response, hoping to deter breaches of the border fence. People quickly scattered when they saw the drones approaching.

Palestinian protesters were fired upon by Israeli snipers during Land Day protests east of Gaza City.

The large turnout of flag-waving marchers in the dangerous border zone demonstrates Hamas' organizing skills.

Guterres wants "an independent and transparent investigation" into the violence, spokesman Farhan Haq said.

Many pro-Palestinian advocates on social media accused the IDF of committing "war crimes".

The Israeli military estimate was 17,000.Families brought their children to camps just a few hundred metres (yards) from the border fence, with football fields marked out in the sand, and scout bands playing. The black smoke of tires burned by young Palestinians, to avoid being white of soldiers, was repeated in Palestinian cities of West Bank like Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus or Jericho. "I suggest to you to continue your lives and not participate in a provocation", Lieberman warned. But it also demonstrates Gaza residents' growing dissatisfaction after a decade-old border closure. In Friday's presentations, Palestinians tossed rocks as well as firebombs towards Israeli soldiers on the boundary.

The UN Security Council was to hold closed-door talks about the situation in Gaza later Friday at the request of Kuwait, a diplomat said.

Sixteen people were killed by Israeli fire as thousands of Palestinian protesters marched to Gaza's border.

Another farmer was wounded in the leg by shrapnel, Samour said.

The date is one day after the new US Embassy in Jerusalem is expected to be formally opened. Some 30,000 protesters took part, according to the IDF. According to data from Palestinian Ministry of Health, nearly 1416 injured about a hundred have suffered gunshot wounds, while most have been taken care of at border-enabled emergency posts by Palestinian Red Crescent by inhalation of Tear gas. Other Palestinian factions also participated in organizing the protests.

The mass demonstration got underway on Friday as Palestinians held a mass rally to commemorate Land Day, which marks the killing of six unarmed civilians by Israeli forces in 1976.

Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum praised the turnout.

Israeli forces reportedly used live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas.

The military said thousands participated in the clashes.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh spoke at one tent encampment on Friday, saying that Gazans were demanding a "return to Palestine, all of Palestine".

Israeli troops used tear gas and live fire to force back Palestinians who approached the heavily fortified border fence.

The IDF doubled its deployment along the fence ahead of the march, KAN reported.

"Israel must immediately cease the use of force that will further increase tension in the region", said a Foreign Ministry statement, expressing concern over deaths and injuries due to Israel's excessive use of force.

The anniversary of Israel's founding will be particularly fraught for Palestinians this year. Roughly 700,000 Palestinians were displaced from their homes during the Arab-Israeli war.
