Israeli army nabs Gaza infiltrators ahead of mass protests

Mansour Al-Otaibi, Kuwait's Ambassador to the United Nations, said Israel's actions were "a violation of the international humanitarian law".

Haniyeh said they will not compromise and there is no solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict without a return to "the entire land of Palestine".

In failing to provide the full context for the deadly border riots, the news media are unwittingly helping Hamas achieve its objectives.

Israel and the Trump administration expressed concern in recent months about a looming humanitarian crisis in Gaza and appealed to the international community to fund large-scale development projects there, including a desalination plant.

The health ministry in Gaza said 16 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces and more than 1,400 were injured, including 758 by live fire, with the remainder hurt by rubber bullets and tear gas. It also said that in one incident, Palestinian gunmen fired towards Israeli soldiers.

Witnesses said confrontations broke out when Israeli soldiers fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of Palestinian protesters.

Israeli officials had braced for the effort to turn violent, while Palestinian supporters of the march said they hoped to capitalise on those optics. Please allow us to show you some offers from our partners so we can keep providing this free service to our visitors.

Israeli troops have remained deployed along the border amid fears violence could resume.

Prior to the planned demonstration, regional experts were warning that the Hamas protests were meant as cover for a mass military campaign to swarm Israel's border and stoke violence against the Jewish state, the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday.

Israel said troops had directed tank fire at suspicious figures near the border fence in the area. The writers Loveday Morris and Hazem Balousha use the word "riots" and burning tires and rock-throwing in quotation marks, thus treating the Israeli military authorities as highly-interested informants. It is a sign that the protest, which has been dubbed the Great March of Return, is in it for the long haul.

The protest, which has the backing of Hamas, is expected to last more than six weeks, as US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital becomes final when the US Embassy moves to Jerusalem.

But while close to the border clashes raged, a few hundred meters away the atmosphere was far different - even jovial.

On Land Day and Nakba Day in 2011, thousands of Palestinians from Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank and Gaza, and inside Israel marched on the country's borders.

The spokesman told Efe news that about 2,000 other Palestinians were injured during the protests called by Hamas in observance of Land Day on Friday, which symbolises the demand of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to be allowed to return to their homeland.

The outrage on the left is reminiscent of the Mavi Marmara onslaught in 2010, when Israeli commandos boarded a Turkish aid ship trying to reach Gaza and killed nine of the aid volunteers.

Israeli soldiers are seen next to the border fence on the Israeli side of the border with the northern Gaza Strip, Israel.

The demonstrations began Friday with tent camps set up a half-mile from Gaza's 25-mile (40-kilometer) frontier with Israel; the climax is to come in mid-May with a mass march to the border that Israel fears will become an attempt to breach its territory.

His family member as well as fellow farmer, Yasser Samour, informed the AP that Amr Samour had actually been gathering parsley in the morning darkness when he was struck.
