Medics: Israeli Troops Kill 7 Palestinians on Day of Heightened Gaza Border Protests
She said live fire by Israel forces killed 16 people and reportedly wounded more than 1,000 others, many who were unarmed. As the body count and the number of injured rose, the Palestinian publicity machine kicked into high gear, with photos on social media showing crying Palestinian women holding bloodied family members and Palestinian protesters running from Israeli snipers.
Israeli soldiers abducted, from Saturday evening until Sunday at dawn, 28 Palestinians, from their homes in several parts of the occupied West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem.
It stressed that Israeli live fire killed at least nine Palestinians, including a minor and a Palestinian journalist wearing a "press" jacket, and hurt hundreds more. The border area appeared calm Saturday.
Liz Throssell, a spokeswoman for the United Nations high commissioner for human rights, warned that, under worldwide law, firearms could be used only in cases of extreme necessity, as a last resort and in response to an imminent threat of death or risk of serious injury.
"The circumstances in which journalists were allegedly hit by IDF fire are not familiar to the IDF and are being looked into", it said.
On Friday afternoon, Murtaja stood about 300 yards away from the fence, documenting Palestinians burning tires, said photographer Rushdi Serraj, a close colleague who said he was next to Murtaja when he was shot. Protesters are likely to burn tires and use mirrors and laser pointers in the hope of obscuring visibility and distracting IDF snipers, according to Reuters.
Refugees comprise most of the 2 million population of Israeli-blockaded Gaza, an enclave ruled by the Islamist movement Hamas which calls for Israel's destruction and is designated by Western states as a terrorist organisation.
Earlier on Friday a Palestinian identified as Thaer Rabia from the northern Gaza Strip town of Jabaliya, succumbed to wounds sustained during Friday protests one week ago.
Attempts were made by Palestinians to infiltrate into Israel under the cover of a smoke screen, in addition to explosive devices and firebombs thrown toward IDF soldiers and attempts to damage the security fence, the IDF said.
"None of our troops were wounded, the border was not crossed", he said, noting that what happened last week had "deterred Hamas, which prevented the masses from approaching the (border) fence".
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said the Passover holiday "was one of the quietest and safest we have known in recent years". Tamar Zandberg, the newly elected head of the left-wing Meretz party, called on the government to open an independent investigation into the violence on the Gaza border.
"My only dream is to travel, I wish to capture this scene from the air, not from the ground. Anyone who operates drones above IDF soldiers needs to understand he's putting himself in danger".
"We know that in many instances Hamas has used journalists and the media and the Red Crescent and ambulances to carry out terror activities", Lieberman alleged.
"So we use tyres that will misguide the Israeli's gunshots, as we are peaceful protesters, we needed something to protect us from Israeli brutality".
