Israeli troops kill 4 Palestinians as Gaza demonstrations resume

Israeli troops kill 4 Palestinians as Gaza demonstrations resume

According to Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, of the more than 600 kites launched from Gaza so far, around 400 kites have been intercepted.

Al-Baba was covering the resumption of mass protests in the Gaza Strip, as thousands of Palestinians joined demonstrations over Israel's refusal to allow Palestinian refugees to return to their pre-1948 homes, news reports said.

The other images she showed were of Messi standing up to an Israeli referee-soldier, of the Argentine team with the word "APARTHEID" behind them, of street protests in Argentina and of Gazan footballer Mohammed Khalil Obeid who was shot in his both knees by an Israeli sniper during the Great March of Return protests.

But Israel has faced worldwide criticism and calls for an independent investigation over its use of live fire during the protests and clashes along the border. (Hamas, the Islamist terrorist group that governs Gaza, said 50 of those killed over rioting on May 14-15 were members.) The Associated Press reported that some of the protesters wore striped uniforms meant to mimic those worn by Jews in concentration camps during the Holocaust. Israel claimed Hamas had intentionally provoked the violence, a charge Hamas denied.

THE UN General Assembly will hold an emergency meeting next Wednesday at 3pm (19:00GMT) to vote on an Arab-backed resolution on Gaza, the body's president Miroslav Lajcak announced yesterday.

Palestinian UN Ambassador Riad Mansur said that Kuwait's resolution draft was "completely balanced" and stated that his draft will be nearly entirely identical.

"We condemn in the strongest terms of these atrocities against Palestinian civilian population", he said, noting that "what happened today adds to our argument, and to the urgency of providing global protection".

IOS 12 allows older iPhones to stay current for another year
When Apple releases the new iOS 12 update, you'll be able to use the group FaceTime feature with up 32 simultaneous participants. And while the iOS 12 beta might be tempting, many iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users are better off staying put on iOS 11 .

Among those wounded with gunfire was an Agence France-Presse photographer and a 23-year-old man who was on life support after a tear gas canister penetrated his face, medics said. His family said he was taking part in a protest in Rafah, in southern Gaza, when he was shot.

Quds Day, an annual event that falls on June 8 this year, is observed on the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Iran along with several Arab countries. Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed the area in a move that is not internationally recognised.

Since March, Palestinians have sent kites and balloons with flaming materials into Israeli territory, setting hundreds of blazes that have destroyed Israeli fields and nature reserves to the tune of around NIS 5 million.

Around 2 million people live in Gaza, a lot of them the stateless descendants of refugees from what is now Israel.

The Palestinians said the Argentinians pulled out of the match after they realised Israel was using its presence in Jerusalem for political gain.

Whitford responded to Mason by saying she would defend her right to criticise Israel, and called on the Scottish Government to back the establishment of a Palestinian state.
