Palestinian journalist shot and killed in Gaza

Gazans, including Palestinian refugees and their descendants seeking to regain ancestral homes in what is now Israel, have set up tent encampments a few hundred meters inside the 65-kilometer (40-mile) fence that separates Israel from the Gaza Strip.

Israeli forces killed seven Palestinians as thousands protested and clashes erupted along the Gaza border on Friday, a week after a mass demonstration led to violence and the bloodiest day since a 2014 war. Hundreds more were wounded by live fire last week, according to Palestinian health officials.

At least six journalists were shot and wounded, according to a statement from the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate.

Since 2005, 23 out of every 24 deaths caused by the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians have been Palestinian, Vox reported. "The IDF does not intentionally target journalists".

Israel has alleged that Hamas is using the mass marches as a cover for attacking the border fence, and has vowed to prevent a breach at all costs.

Yehia Abu Daqqa, a 20-year-old student, said he had come to honor those killed in previous protests.

Israel has threatened to strike Hamas which runs the Gaza Strip, if "March of Return" rallies near the fence separating the blockaded enclave and the occupied territories continue.

The world should "wait for our great move, when we penetrate the borders and pray at Al-Aqsa", Sinwar said, referring to the major Muslim shrine in Jerusalem. Gen. Ronen Manelis, an Israeli army spokesman.

Israel has drawn sharp criticism for its open-fire orders along the border, including its warnings that those approaching or trying to damage the fence would be targeted.

The European Union and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres have called for an independent investigation, which Israel has rejected.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry has called on the worldwide community to find a new formula that would deny the USA the right to veto Security Council resolutions demanding the establishment of an independent inquiry commission on events in Gaza.

Kuwait's United Nations ambassador Mansour al-Otaibi said that it is a matter the Security Council should address.

The text brought by Kuwait, a non-permanent member of the Security Council, is the same as the one it submitted earlier which was blocked by Washington.

Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour told reporters after a meeting Thursday with Guterres that the United Nations leader's response was "positive".

"There are no innocent people in the Gaza Strip", Mr Lieberman told Israel's public radio. Israel's army declined to comment, saying it was reviewing the incident.

Hamas has acknowledged some belonged to its military wing, taking part in "popular events".

The crowd size was seen as a test for Hamas, an Islamic militant group that seized the territory in 2007 from its political rival, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Among the nine killed were three children and another 40 injured.
