United Nations condemns Israel's use of 'excessive force' in Gaza

  • Palestinian protesters evacuate a wounded woman during clashes with Israeli troops along Gaza's border with Israel Friday

A 15 year old Palestinian boy, Mohammed Ayoub, was killed in a recent border protest, sparking a heated Twitter exchange between the United Nations' envoy to the Middle East, Nickolay Mladenov, and Peter Lerner, former spokesman for the Israeli military.

Fifth - As I said in my first blog on this subject, we sitting here in America can not second guess Israeli soldiers in the field in the midst of combat. "The deployment of snipers, careful planning and significant number of injuries to the lower limbs does reflect an apparent policy to target [those] limbs", said Omar Shakir, Israel-Palestine director at Human Rights Watch in NY.

After dark, the Israeli military said in a statement that its fighter jets had struck six targets belonging to Hamas' naval force "in response to the terror activity and mass attempt to infiltrate into Israeli territory earlier today". The Israeli military said about 14,000 Gazans had been participating in what it described as "riots" and that some had tried to breach the frontier.

Added Shaquill: "I was going to be happy no matter what team that gave him the opportunity". "But I knew how it was going to go". He joins his twin brother Shaquill , who was drafted in the third round past year by Seattle. "I'm glad they made this happen".

The Gaza Health Ministry said that three Palestinians were killed on Friday and 200 were wounded by gunfire.

It was the Trump regime's decision, announced in February, that the USA would move its embassy to Jerusalem that emboldened the Israelis to use such vicious repression against the Palestinian protesters in Gaza.

Among the wounded, 178 were shot with live ammunition on Friday while others sustained injuries from rubber-coated steel rounds, or required treatment for tear gas exposure.

Klopp backs Gerrard for Rangers manager
Klopp joked: "As long as he is not the Everton manager, or Man United, then we would still help him if he has questions". I'm sure he will do a bit of due diligence and he has got plenty of people he can turn to for advice.

Dubbed the "Great March of Return", the protest action is to continue until May 15 when, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh says, the Gaza demonstrations will be replicated elsewhere along Israel's frontiers. These apparently deliberate attempts to kill and maim are deeply disturbing, not to mention completely illegal. He said the Palestinians were intentionally sending children, women, disabled people and the mentally ill toward the fence.

Video footage widely circulated on social media shows Abd Al-Fattah Abd Al-Nabi, aged 19, being shot on 30 March as he was running away from the fence while holding a tyre, with his back turned to Israeli soldiers.

It recapitulates pure Hamas propaganda characterizing the weekly assault as "protests" against a "blockade" when it is one small part of Hamas's continuing war on the existence of Israel.
