Israeli troops fire shots, tear gas at Gaza protesters, 350 Palestinians hurt

Saeb Erekat

Asser's death raised the death toll of Palestinians to 48 killed by Israeli fire since weekly border protests started on March 30, according to statistics released by the Ministry.

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

A 32-year-old man wearing a camouflage hat with his face masked, a traditional keffiyeh scarf around his neck, said they hoped to fly around 50 kites. During the meeting, Pompeo said that the boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem "remain subject to negotiations between the parties" and that the USA is committed to achieving "a lasting and comprehensive peace that offers a brighter future for both Israel and the Palestinians".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said President Donald Trump's decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is something that his people will remember "for many, many generations".

Israeli media have in recent days reported significant damage to farms due to kite-flown Molotov cocktails, though the devices face hard odds in making it across the fence while still lit.

During the events, two army drones crashed in the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army estimated that 7,000 Palestinians took place in this Friday's demonstrations in five main locations along the border fence.

"Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has failed to produce any evidence that the Elia Youth Media Foundation is a terrorist organization", Committee to Protect Journalists, MENA Program Coordinator Sherif Mansour said in a statement.

Hamas says the protests highlight a decade-long Israeli-Egyptian blockade and press to revive Palestinian demands to return to homes in what is now Israel.

Last Friday, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights urged Israel to refrain from using excessive force against protesters, saying that those responsible for the protesters' deaths should be held accountable.

Two-thirds of Gaza's 2 million Palestinians are war refugees or their descendants.

The move has deeply angered the Palestinians, who see the Israeli-annexed eastern sector of Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.
