Israel bans entry of auto tires into Gaza after massive tire-burning

He further told the demonstrators that "the killing and wounding of yet more unarmed Palestinian protesters yesterday by Israeli forces in Gaza is an outrage", underlining that "firing live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians is illegal and inhumane and can not be tolerated".

The UN office noted that Israeli security forces are required by global human rights law to respect the rights to peaceful assembly and expression and to use, to the extent possible, non-violent means to discharge their duties.

The deaths brought to 21 the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli fire over the past week, including 15 who had been involved in the protests.

The Israeli military said that the thousands of protesters were using the demonstration as a cover to carry out attacks, with one incident mentioning a Palestinian gunman firing toward soldiers.

Saturday's march was the second in what Gaza's Hamas rulers said would be several weeks of protests against a decade-old border blockade of the territory.

Gaza's economy has been devastated by years of Israeli military attacks and a joint Israeli-Egyptian blockade.

"Soldier, rules of engagement that can cause the death of civilians who do not pose a danger to human lives are illegal", the NGO said.

Smaller groups, mostly young men, rushed forward, throwing stones, hurling firebombs or burning tires and drawing Israeli fire.

At least a further 9 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces during protests along the border with Israel.

Brazil Sends Ex-President Lula To Prison
Lula da Silva will not be handcuffed and will be placed in a separate jail cell upon his arrest, according to the arrest warrant. Rousseff was impeached and removed from office amid corruption scandals and economic crisis in mid-2016.

Israel argues that Hamas could have ended the suffering of Gaza's two million people by disarming and renouncing violence.

With Israeli communities mendacity just some hundred meters away from the border, Israel has made clear that it's going to not settle for any breach. Israel has come under mounting criticism for shooting dead unarmed Palestinian civilians protesting peacefully.

On Thursday, Lieberman threatened to respond to the protests in the "harshest" manner if the demonstrators approach the fence separating Israelis and Palestinians.

Israel says most of those killed were militants.

Hundreds of protesters suffered other injuries, including tear gas inhalation.

"Whatever we use, we are always targeted by Israeli forces". "Palestinian photographer Yasser Mourtaja was wearing a vest marked "Press": he was obviously the victim of an intentional shot", said Christophe Deloire, the Secretary General of Reporters Without Borders (RSF), on Twitter.

The Jerusalem Post reported that Saudi and Egyptian officials had opened contacts with Hamas leaders to call for an end to the weekly protests in Gaza.

The Israeli daily Haaretz quoted Israeli army sources as saying on Saturday that they would react forcefully if the alleged attempts to damage the fence continued.
