Gaza border protests turn deadly again in clashes with Israeli forces

Khalil Hamra

According to the Hamas-run health ministry in the Gaza Strip, 35 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli gunfire since the beginning of the marches three weeks ago.

For protests set for Friday, Gazans were hoping to send dozens of kites over the fence, including some carrying notes telling Israelis "there is no place for you in Palestine".

The leaflets were dropped on Friday, ahead of what's to be the fourth large-scale protest, largely organized by Gaza's rulers from the Islamic militant Hamas, in part to challenge a decade-old border blockade of the territory.

Demonstrators began gathering close to the fence separating Israel from Gaza, where nearly 1.3 million of the small territory's two million inhabitants are refugees, to demand the right to return to their pre-1948 homes.

The resolution concludes that the "EU's main objective is to achieve the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the basis of the 1967 borders, with Jerusalem as the capital of both states, with the secure State of Israel and an independent, democratic, contiguous and viable Palestinian State living side by side in peace and security, on the basis of the right of self-determination and full respect for worldwide law". The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) is prepared for all scenarios.

"Hopefully this can contribute to the breaking the current spiral of violence between Gaza and Israel", ChristenUnie parliamentarian Joel Voordewind said, according to the broadcaster. "Hamas must know that any attack on IDF commanders at the border to Gaza will immediately lead to a renewal of targeted killings of the Hamas leadership". In response, an IDF tank struck a Hamas target. In that instance, Palestinian media reported five injuries. Hamas is taking advantage of you to carry out terrorist attacks.

The marches also press for the return of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to what is now Israel. Several Israeli communities are close to the border. It continues a brutal occupation of the West Bank and the Golan Heights and denies full civil rights to Palestinians living within Israel's borders.
