Israeli carnage raises fears of Gaza conflagration

Protestors evacuate a wounded youth after clashes with Israeli forces

Protestors evacuate a wounded youth after clashes with Israeli forces

Earlier Monday, al-Qedra announced that a 29-year-old Palestinian man, called Fares al-Reqeb, died of his wounds he sustained Friday, when Israeli soldiers opened fire at Palestinian demonstrators and critically wounded him in the abdomen in eastern Gaza.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman continues to reject worldwide calls for an investigation.

Eleven Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire on Sunday near the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

The vast majority of Gaza residents are descendants of Palestinians who fled or were driven from communities in what is now Israel.

The Israeli military accused Hamas on Sunday of releasing videos that were incomplete, edited or "completely fabricated", but did not elaborate.

Palestinians have called the rally a "peaceful demonstration" in order to raise worldwide awareness of the plight the displaced Palestinians are struggling with and take the chance to express their anger towards the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip.

The Islamic Jihad terror group said in a statement that Raqib was a member, but that he was not carrying a weapon when he was shot.

The officials did not say how troops would respond if "red lines" were crossed.

In Friday's confrontations, large crowds gathered near the fence, with smaller groups of protesters rushing forward, throwing stones and burning tires.

Rights groups said it's unlawful to use lethal force when Palestinian protesters don't pose an imminent threat to the lives of Israeli soldiers.

An Associated Press reporter saw two young men getting shot in the legs Saturday, in incidents about 15 minutes apart, as they stepped away from a group of dozens of people standing about 200 metres (yards) from the border and walked closer to the fence.

"An army can use reasonable force to defend a border", said Omar Shakir of the global group Human Rights Watch.

"The big achievement of last Friday is that they (marchers) didn't cross the border", he told Israel's Channel 10.

Gaza:Palestinians have protested for the third day as part of the annual "March of Return" to commemorate Land Day, braving Israeli tanks and snipers deployed along the Gaza fence where 17 protesters were killed a few days ago.

A Palestinian protester wearing an Anonymous mask holds a knife during clashes with Israeli security forces near the border with Israel, east of Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, on April 01, 2018. The day marks the forced expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinians from their homes during the establishment of the Israeli state in 1948.
