For third week, Palestinian journalists injured by gunfire covering Gaza protests

Killing of Palestinian journalist protested in Istanbul

Hundreds of Palestinians have been wounded after thousands staged a mass protest along Gaza's sealed border with Israel on Friday.

Israel says it is doing what it must to defend its border, and to stop any of the protesters getting across the fence. The military said that demonstrators hurled an explosive device and several fire bombs near the fence in what it said was an apparent attempt to damage it.

A Palestinian journalist was wounded in the border clashes last Friday and later died of his injuries.

US Senator Bernie Sanders sent a letter to congressional colleagues on Friday urging the White House to take action to improve the "humanitarian crisis" facing Gazans as they protest for the third straight week.

PARIS • The Eiffel Tower was shut yesterday due to a strike by security personnel over the suspension of three of their colleagues, the company operating Paris' most recognisable monument and trade unions said.

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

Tens of thousands have gathered there to participate in the Great March of Return, a protest against conditions in Gaza and the right of return for Palestinian refugees. "An order to open live fire at unarmed protesters is manifestly unlawful", it said.

The Centre pointed out that the Israeli army had used deadly force against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip "in a blatant violation of global law, and killed many people".

They have also injured not less than 3,000 people since the start of protests, according to the reports by Gaza's health ministry.

Smaller groups moved closer to the fence, throwing stones, torching tires and burning large Israeli flags, USA flags, as well as posters of Israel's prime minister and defense minister.

OCHA reported 2,870 Palestinians wounded between 30 March and 11 April.

Dozens of Israeli flags were burned, as were photos of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, US President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, seen by protesters as cooperating with Israel.

The official end date of the protests is May 15, when Palestinians mark the Nakba, or "catastrophe", commemorating the more than 700,000 who fled or were expelled during the 1948 war surrounding Israel's creation.

Israel claimed he was a paid member of Hamas, but produced no evidence.

An Israeli military spokesman said troops were being confronted by rioters and responded "with riot dispersal means while also firing in accordance with the rules of engagement".
