Israel warns Gazans to avoid border in Friday protest

A scarecrow model is set on fire by Iranian demonstratorson during the annual pro Palestinian rally

Ramallah: A Palestinian who threw a rock at Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday was shot dead by a soldier, the Israeli Army said in a statement.

An Israeli worker of Nature and Parks Authority extinguishes a fire started by a kite with attached burning cloth launched by Palestinians from Gaza, on the Israel and Gaza border, Tuesday, June 5, 2018.

"The soldier responded by firing at the Palestinian, who was wounded and given medical treatment at the scene", it said.

The subcommittee's focus was on what it described as "the Palestinian Authority's strategic takeover of land in Area C", the roughly 60 per cent of the West Bank where the majority of illegal Israeli settlements are located, and where Palestinian structures are routinely demolished.

Israel Defense Forces investigators say initial findings show that 22-year-old Gazan nurse Razan Ashraf Najjar was not deliberately targeted but rather was inadvertently hit by gunfire during violence at the Gaza-Israel border last week.

Singapore abuzz with preparations for Trump-Kim summit
Under the current cost-sharing agreement signed in 2014, South Korea provides $830 million per year for the upkeep of USA forces. Kim Yong-chol met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and hand-delivered a letter directly from Kim Jong-un to Trump.

Asked what could cause the situation on the Gaza border to escalate even further, the officer gave several examples of possible "game changers": three Israeli soldiers being killed during the protests, a rocket hitting a kindergarten while children are present, or a breach in the fence that would lead to a mass infiltration by 500 or so protesters. Others threw stones or flew kites with burning rags attached, aiming to send them over the border and set Israeli fields on fire.

The Hamas-led demonstrations have been fueled by despair over a decade-old Israel-Egyptian blockade, imposed after the Islamic militant group seized control of the territory.

Residents of the Palestinian village often hold protests against Israel that end in violent clashes with the IDF.

Israel accuses Hamas of using demonstrators as human shields while trying to carry out attacks and says it is defending its sovereign border.

Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed it to its capital, a move not recognized by most of the worldwide community.
