Israeli military strikes Hamas targets after bomb explodes on Gaza border

Gaza protests

A Hamas statement said Liberman's comments were contrary to the "facts on the ground" given that Murtaja was not filming with a drone Friday. The Palestinian health ministry did not issue a statement regarding the shot Palestinian.

AFP could not independently verify Abu Daqqa's claim, but separate footage from that day shows him in hospital after being shot in his leg, which is still in plaster four months after the incident.

Wow, what a video!. YES! Education Minister Naftali Bennett, head of the ultra-conservative Jewish Home Party, called on Israelis not to criticize the soldiers arguing "They guard our lives, We guard them. Hence, my principle is always to defend, indeed, soldiers who are on the battlefield".

"I am convinced that everything is OK", he added, while also speaking of a "human reaction" by the soldiers confronted with a "tense situation".

The Islamic militant group Hamas that rules Gaza is now leading a campaign of mass protests at the border and 26 Palestinians have been killed since it began two weeks ago.

The footage filmed from the Israeli side of the border fence, which included rejoicing after the shooting, was shared widely online and by the media earlier this week. "Are you [trained] on him?"

"Go, yes", the first voice affirms.

"Our message to journalists in Israel is that they must condemn attacks on journalists in Gaza", says Muhammad Zanoun, a photojournalist in Gaza who has been taking photos for Activestills over the past few weeks.

Israel's defence minister praised the sniper, but criticised the soldier who filmed the incident.

U.S. to respond to alleged chemical attack in Syria
Russian Federation has urged the United States to avoid taking military action in response to an alleged chemical attack in Syria. Twelve council members voted in favor, while Bolivia joined Russian Federation in voting no, and China abstained.

What makes such casualty figures all the more disturbing, however, is the rhetoric from Israeli officials, political and military, as well as the army's open fire regulations.

Palestinians are seen rushing to rescue the injured man.

The Israeli army amassed soldiers along the militarized fence along with 100 snipers with orders to shoot to kill.

Of the cheering soldiers, he added: "The truth must be clear".

Ayman Odeh, a senior MK from Israel's Palestinian minority, called for the sniper to be put on trial. You may want to kill us as well. It has said some of those at the border tried to damage the fence, planted explosives or hurled fire bombs.

According to al-Quds and al-Ayyam, Israeli occupation authorities would impose a total closure on the Palestinian territories (West Bank and Gaza) for three days starting from Tuesday. The army says it uses live fire as a last resort, and only on attackers.

Last Friday was a hard one for journalists in Gaza.

Israel says it holds Hamas responsible for all violence emanating from Gaza and will not allow the border area to become a combat zone. Organisers of the protest denied any Hamas-sponsored links.

Time magazine might want to take a second look at the name Palestinians have given to the recent demonstrations and clashes along the Gaza Strip's border with Israel.
