Israeli forces kill Palestinian during protests near Gaza border

Israelis may be anxious but Palestinians in Gaza have actually been killed

People in Gaza have been holding protests for six weeks.

Holding Palestinian flags and banners, the protesters were chanting "Free Palestine", "Freedom Now" and "End Occupation" slogans.

There are also fears that the West Bank and East Jerusalem will see protests and the IDF has sent in reinforcements there too.

Evans is celebrating the bold stand of President Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and now is moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

President Donald Trump will address around 800 U.S. and Israeli dignitaries at the ceremonial opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem by video on Monday, the United States ambassador said.

Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar declared on May 10 that he hopes that Palestinians are able to penetrate the Israel-Gaza fence during the upcoming riots, which is essentially an admission that this has been Hamas's goal all along. Israel and Egypt maintain a security blockade of Gaza. It did not provide details on how the IDF would do so.

"Israeli authorities must investigate the shooting of Dalloul and take all measures to ensure that the media can safely cover protests", CPJ's Middle East and North Africa Program Coordinator Sherif Mansour said.

Rioters were "violent, burning tires and hurling rocks", the IDF said in a statement.

Vandals later burned a fuel complex and a conveyor belt on the Palestinian side of Gaza's main cargo crossing with Israel, causing more than $US9 million in damages and disrupting the import of diesel fuel and building materials, the military said. -Israeli celebration, downplaying reports that very few if any diplomats from other countries that have not recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital would attend.

Since the border rallies began on March 30, at least 47 Palestinians have been killed - and hundreds more injured - by cross-border Israeli army gunfire, according to Health Ministry figures. The kite fell inside Israel, where it started a small brush fire. The vast majority of people killed at or near the fence have been Hamas and other terror group members.

According to Yahoo News, dozens were injured by live-fire ammunition and tear gas as Gaza officials urged demonstrators to flood the blockade; calling for mass protests to "burst through the border fence into Israel".

The Israeli military has faced worldwide and domestic criticism over its use of live fire, with the United Nations and European Union calling for an independent investigation rejected by Israel.

Mr. Trump has promised to broker a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, assigning the task to top advisers led by Jared Kushner, his son-in-law.

The protesters performed Friday prayers at the monument before dispersing. Are you aware that there is no freedom of the press in Gaza?

Hamas has said if the protests "don't achieve their goals", they will continue.

Palestinian refugees' right to return is a central demand of the protests in Gaza. Every year on May 15, Palestinians all over the world hold demonstrations to commemorate the day, which marks the anniversary of the forcible eviction of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homeland by Israelis in 1948.
