Israeli gunfire injures 35 Palestinians on Gaza border

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan seen in a combination

Earlier in the day, al Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military wing, released names and photos of five people identified as members of the group who were killed.

Palestinians walk down an empty street during a full strike in Nablus in the West Bank on Saturday. It argues that refugees should resettle in a future state the Palestinians seek in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza.

Israel does not accept any right of return for Palestinian refugees.

In a statement, ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said Israeli forces opened fire, injuring 49 people in Rafah, Khan Yunis, and Gaza. Some 20,000 or more Gazans lined the border to southern Israel and began confronting and attacking soldiers, many cutting through the fence and trying to enter Israel.

In a statement, the Israeli military accused Hamas of "cynically exploiting women and children, sending them to the security fence and endangering their lives".

Unverified videos being shared online have fuelled the debate, including one appearing to show a protester running with a tyre being shot while seeming to pose no threat.

Netanyahu praises Israeli troops after deadly clashes in Gaza
'Well done to our soldiers,' says Netanyahu after Israel army kills Palestinians

On Friday at least 15 Palestinians were killed by Israeli security forces confronting protesters, some of whom the military said had opened fire, rolled burning tires and hurled rocks and fire bombs toward troops across the border. No casualties were reported among Israelis.

The United States blocked a Kuwait-drafted U.N. Security Council statement on Saturday, diplomats said, that would have called for an independent investigation and urged restraint by all sides. "If this continues we will not have no choice but to respond inside the Gaza Strip", Manelis told reporters in a phone briefing.

And tensions could be much, much higher by May 15, as it will also be one day after the USA says it will have officially moved its embassy to Jerusalem - a Trump administration plan which has enraged Palestinians and effectively ended US involvement in any peace process, though the State Department says the U.S.is "deeply saddened" by violence on Friday. It was held on Palestinian Land Day, which commemorates the confiscation of Palestinian-owned land in Israel in 1976. "Bad actors who use protests as a cover to incite violence endanger innocent lives", a United States diplomat said.

Human Rights Watch called calling the number of killed and wounded "shocking".

"Israeli allegations of violence by some protesters do not change the fact that using lethal force is banned by worldwide law except to meet an imminent threat to life", the New York-based group said, calling the number of killed and wounded "shocking". The fence separates an army that uses force in self-defense and in a focused and proportionate manner, and Hamas, an organization that sanctifies murder and death, that for years - yesterday included - has been intent on harming millions of Israelis.

Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel pellets and tear gas wounding hundreds and killing 17. "At least 10 known terrorists with track records of terrorist activity were killed whilst carrying out acts of terror during the violent riots along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip on Friday March 30, 2018", the IDF spokesperson wrote on Twitter.
