Health Ministry: "17 Medics Among 701 Palestinians, Injured In Gaza"

Martyrs in Gaza Resist Israel's 'Flagrant Violations of International Law' (Audio)

The marchers are protesting against the blockade, but are also asserting what they say is a "right of return" of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to what is now Israel. Smaller groups moved closer to the fence, throwing stones, torching tires and burning large Israeli flags.

"For the past two weeks, the world has watched in horror as Israeli forces unleashed excessive, deadly force against protesters, including children, who merely demand an end to Israel's brutal policies towards Gaza and a life of dignity", said Magdalena Mughrabi, Amnesty International's Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa.

The instruction to shoot to kill unarmed demonstrators is a product of Israel's occupation and military rule over millions of Palestinians, a group of former Israeli army soldiers said in a letter they sent to a top British daily. The death brought to 28 the number of protesters killed in two weeks, with hundreds wounded by Israeli fire since March 30.

More than 10,000 Palestinians are participating in demonstrations along the Israel-Gaza border. On Thursday a group of former Israeli soldiers, members of the sniper teams, wrote in an open letter "we are filled with shame and sorrow..."

The Palestine Red Crescent Society, a humanitarian organisation, has said one of its medics was shot in the knee.

Israel has accused Gaza's Hamas rulers of using the protests as a cover for attacks and says snipers only target the main "instigators".

For a third consecutive week, thousands of Palestinians are gathering along the Israel-Gaza border.

"The Israeli authorities must respect the Palestinians' right to peaceful protest and, in the event that there is violence, use only the force necessary to address it".

Sajudin told the tabloid he had heard Trump fathered a child with a Trump employee in the late 1980s, according to the reports. The woman at the center of the story "emphatically" denied to the wire service that she had an affair with Trump.

Since the protests began on March 30, 34 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces firing live ammunition, tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at the demonstrators on the other side of the border.

Thousands of Palestinians gathered at five tent camps, several hundred meters (yards) from the border fence.

Many protesters left for midday prayers but larger numbers are expected to gather in five spots along the border on Friday afternoon.

Palestinians take part in the Great March of Return in the Gaza Strip for the third week in row.

Palestinian websites said a photojournalist was slightly injured in his shoulder by Israeli military fire.

The letter by Gil Fermon (formerly of Nahal 50th Battalion), Amit Goldberg, Nadav Weiman (Nahal reconnaissance unit), Avner Gvaryahu (Paratroops anti-tank unit), and Ron ZaidelNahal (931st Battalion) argued that the snipers in Israeli army are under orders to fire live rounds on crowds during demonstrations.

It said soldiers fire live bullets as a last resort, in a "precise and measured manner".
