'No innocent people' in Gaza Strip: Israeli minister

Terror march

This brings up the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since last Friday on the border with the Gaza Strip to 26.

Liz Throssell, a spokeswoman for the United Nations high commissioner for human rights, warned that, under global law, firearms could be used only in cases of extreme necessity, as a last resort and in response to an imminent threat of death or risk of serious injury.

Also in Australia, almost 1,000 demonstrators joined a protest rally in Melbourn dubbed "Free Palestine" to censure Israeli regime's brutal violence - including live fire - used against Palestinian protesters in occupied territories in recent days.

Palestinians nicknamed this Friday's demonstration "Jum'at al-Kawshook", which translates to "Friday of Tires", as protesters set fire to thousands of tires along the border, creating huge clouds of black smoke in order to confuse Israeli snipers and prevent them from targeting protesters with live ammunition.

During the second round of protests on Friday, Palestinians burned tyres along the Gaza border to protect themselves from Israeli sniper and tank fire.

Hamas, the Islamic terror group which has ruled Gaza since a 2007 takeover and calls for Israel's destruction, has called for a series of protests until May 15, the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, which the Palestinians observe as Nakba Day, meaning Day of Catastrophe.

Large groups of youths have ventured much closer to the no-go zone along the barrier, risking live fire from Israeli troops to roll burning tires and throw stones.

In all, 22 Palestinians were killed in Gaza over the past week, including 16 involved in last Friday's protests, according to Gaza health officials.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan told Israel's army radio on Thursday that he had asked the attorney general to examine whether B'Tselem should be investigated for "calling for sedition".

The Only Way to Win a Trade War is Not To Fight
He said he had also instructed agricultural officials to implement a plan to protect U.S. farmers and agricultural interests. That was backed up by Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, who said tariff negotiations with China had not started.

Mourners and journalists carry the body of Palestinian journalist Yasser Murtaja, during his funeral in Gaza City on April 7, 2018.

With Israeli communities mendacity just some hundred meters away from the border, Israel has made clear that it's going to not settle for any breach.

Other casualties followed armed clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces, including the shelling of a Hamas observation point.

"If they are actively attacking the fence, if they are throwing a molotov cocktail that is within striking distance of Israeli troops or similar activities, then those persons, those rioters, become, may become, a target", said Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.

The hundreds of injuries over the past two Fridays of protest have further strained Gaza's already embattled health system.

There has been an uptick in violence between Israelis and Palestinians since US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.

The peaceful demonstrations turned violent after Israeli forces used tear gas and live fire against the protesters.

Palestinian media reported that a tank had fired shells at the men.
