Zionist Entity Declares Gaza Protests 'State of War': Paper

  • In Gaza, women protest in midst of burning tires, smoke

The soldiers also fired gas bombs at two ambulances east of Khuza'a, east of Khan Younis in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, casing damage.

"While some Palestinian demonstrators have thrown stones and other objects towards the fence, it's hard to believe how this would be an imminent danger to the lives of well-equipped soldiers protected by snipers, tanks and drones", Amnesty International has said. Israel countered by saying the damage was limited to the Palestinian side.

Dozens of Palestinians were wounded by Israeli gunfire on Friday as thousands returned to the Gaza border for a sixth week of protests that have seen almost 50 demonstrators killed.

"This is a cynical act that harms the welfare of Gaza residents and the humanitarian efforts carried out by Israel and many other countries", the army said. The blockade also affects Gazan fisherman who risks being shot if they attempt to fish beyond the six nautical miles Israel allows them to use.

He said they spend their weekdays collecting tires to bring to the border fence on Friday protests which they attend every week.

It was not clear what caused the drones to crash.

Army gunfire has killed at least 43 Palestinians on the frontier over the last month, Reuters reported.

Ruling party names Erdogan as presidential candidate
Despite having been in jail since November 2016, former leader Selahattin Demirtas is expected to head this campaign. Before that, he served as prime minister, from 2003 to 2014.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she had no information about the incident.

Human rights groups have consistently rejected this argument.

Black smoke billowed over a protest camp east of Gaza City where Palestinians burned tyres and flew kites, at least one carrying a Molotov cocktail meant to set fire to nearby Israeli fields.

Israel says it is protecting its borders and takes such action only when rioters, some hurling stones and Molotov cocktails trying to lay explosives, come too close to the fence.

The use of live ammunition by Israel's army has been condemned by the worldwide community and human rights activists. One of them said over social media that they had "torched rooms used by the Occupation (Israel)". Palestinians mourn the day since they were uprooted in masses to make way for the Israeli state in 1948.

Gaza's Hamas rulers have said the protests might culminate in a mass breach of the border fence by May 15.
