Journalist killed by Israeli forces while covering protests

"The IDF uses means such as warnings, riot dispersal means, and as a last resort firing live rounds in a precise, measured way", it said Saturday.

Friday's march is the second in what Gaza's Hamas rulers said would be several weeks of protests against a decade-old border blockade of the territory.

"N$3 ot only did the President of the United States react by saying nothing, not only did the vast majority of members of Congress. been entirely silent about this frankly unconscionable use of force - the US blocked a U.N. Security Council statement calling for an investigation of what happened", he said.

Live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullet and tear gas fired at the rallies by Israeli soldiers wounded at least 1,600 thus far.

There were also reports from Israeli security forces of militants attempting to get through the fence an in attempt to plant explosives.

Israel has alleged that Hamas is using the mass marches as a cover for attacking the border fence, and has vowed to prevent a breach at all costs.

A Palestinian journalist covering the mass demonstration along the Gaza border during the "The Great March of Return" was shot by Israeli forces died of his wounds.

Palestinian resistance faction Hamas on Saturday condemned the US for vetoing a UN Security Council resolution calling for an investigation into Israel's acts of violence in the Gaza Strip.

With Israeli communities mendacity just some hundred meters away from the border, Israel has made clear that it's going to not settle for any breach.

The UN chief also highlighted the urgency to accelerate efforts to "return to meaningful negotiations that will eventually allow Palestinians and Israelis to live in two democratic states side by side in peace and within secure and recognised borders".

Mourners and journalists carry the body of Palestinian journalist Yasser Murtaja, during his funeral in Gaza City on April 7, 2018.

"They have a right to protest against their appalling conditions and the continuing blockade and occupation of Palestinian land, and in support of their right to return to their homes and their right to self-determination". "The target was very clearly journalists", he said.

Hamas has released photos that purport to show Israeli soldiers on the border within sniper range, sending the message that if it wanted to kill Israeli soldiers, it could.

It is hardly the first time that the Trump administration has demonstrated its callous disregard for Palestinian lives.

Nahal Oz, like dozens of other villages and working class towns on the Gaza periphery, has over the years been targeted by Palestinian short-range rockets and mortar bombs and faced the threat of Hamas cross-border tunnels. They were wounded after the Israeli forces fired at them who had gathered near the Israeli border in the besieged Gaza Strip.
