Palestinians killed and injured at Gaza border

On Friday, the Gaza health official announced that at least four Palestinians, including one 15-year-old, were killed and more than 600 were injured during protests in Gaza.

Palestinian protesters carry a wounded man during clashes with Israeli troops, on the Gaza-Israel border, east of Gaza City, on June 8, 2018. Some threw rocks and burned tyres, according to the statement.

"I think what happened yesterday is a red card from everybody to the Israelis to (get them to) understand that they (only) have a right to organise, or play football within their internationally recognised borders", he said in English, pointing out the final status of Jerusalem is supposed to be the subject of negotiations between the parties.

Two reporters were among the wounded: Mohamed al-Baba, an AFP photographer, who was shot in the right leg, as well as an unidentified cameraman from Al-Aqsa television (affiliated with Hamas) who suffered moderate wounds from being hit with a can of tear gas, health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qedra was quoted by Efe news agency as saying.

He stated that the Gaza demonstrations, launched on March 30, would continue until Palestinians achieve their demand for a right of return to ancestral lands lost to Israel in its 1948 War of Independence.

Israel's deadly tactics in confronting the protests have drawn global condemnation.

Since the weekly border protests started in late March, 127 people have been killed, Palestinian authorities said.

The death toll from Israel's lethal measures against the Gaza protests have drawn global censure, though the United States has placed the blame on Hamas. Israel claimed Hamas had intentionally provoked the violence, a charge Hamas denied.

Mansour said the US veto triggered the request and that Friday's violence "adds to our argument and to the urgency of providing worldwide protection" to Palestinian civilians.

Since then, Abbas has refused to meet with any officials from the Trump administration and has rejected the United States as an appropriate mediator in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

Al-Qedra denounced Israeli army soldiers who fired tear gas against ambulances trying to help the wounded east of Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip while protest organisers put the number of demonstrators at 10,000.

Palestinian demonstrators brought down an Israeli drone carrying a camera used to film demonstrators in eastern Gaza City. This would flood Israel with millions of refugees, effectively turning it into an Arab state.

Haniyyah highlighted the peaceful nature of the protests. International Jerusalem Day also happens to fall this year during the 51st anniversary of the 1967 Middle East war, also known to Palestinians as the Naksa, or "Setback".

"We are not asking for the moon", said Amer Abu Khalaf, a 20-year-old business administration student who took part in Friday's protest.
