Israeli Forces Journalist Target During "Great March" Succumbs To His Injuries

The UN office noted that Israeli security forces are required by worldwide human rights law to respect the rights to peaceful assembly and expression and to use, to the extent possible, non-violent means to discharge their duties.

Palestinian protesters and civil defense evacuate a wounded youth during clashes with Israeli troops along Gaza's border with Israel, east of Khan Younis, April 6, 2018.

FILE COPY Israeli border police hold a position during clashes with Palestinian protestors near the Qalandia checkpoint in the Israeli occupied West Bank as protests continue following the United States president's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. It has also devastated Gaza's economy, made it virtually impossible for people to enter and exit the territory, and left residents with just a few hours of electricity a day.

The Israeli military has said it fired only at "instigators" involved in attacks on soldiers and was investigating Murtaja's death amid a very hectic environment.

Israel still accuses Hamas, the political party and militant group in control of Gaza, of using the protests to infiltrate Israel to commit terror attacks.

More Palestinians were killed along the Gaza-Israeli border as demonstrators returned for the second consecutive Friday.

Israel argues that Hamas could have ended the suffering of Gaza's 2 million people by disarming and renouncing violence. But they stopped short of specifically threatening a mass breach of the border fence.

Palestinians have marched to the fence as part of a six-week protest, dubbed "The Great March of Return", demanding the right to return for those driven out of their homeland.

An Israeli civilian shot a Palestinian man who allegedly pulled out a screwdriver and tried to stab him, according to Israeli police.

The nine dead Palestinians, including a journalist, were buried in Gaza on Saturday.

"Concerning rules of engagement, soldiers treat any activity putting Israel's security in danger as terrorist acts", he said.

"They have a right to protest against their appalling conditions and the continuing blockade and occupation of Palestinian land, and in support of their right to return to their homes and their right to self-determination".

Hundreds of protesters suffered other injuries, including tear gas inhalation.

"None of our troops were wounded, the border was not crossed", he said, noting that what happened last week had "deterred Hamas, which prevented the masses from approaching the (border) fence".

With Israeli tear gas rising into the air, Palestinian youths used T-shirts, cheap medical masks and perfume to try to protect themselves. Israel has no official death toll figures.

Abbas told the Egyptian intelligence this week that he would not waste any more time negotiating a deal with Hamas and that he would only assume responsibility for Gaza if Hamas hands over all powers, including control over the security apparatus, according to two Palestinian officials.
