Israel signals any truce with Hamas to be limited in scope

Two Palestinians were reportedly injured in the attack in the northern city of Beit Lahia, according to an Anadolu Agency reporter in the area. Israel also demands the release of a prisoner said to have mental health issues, thought to be a hostage of Hamas.

News about the death of a Palestinian teen who succumbed to wounds sustained by Israeli forces during the recent protests at Gaza border hit the front pages of three Arabic Palestinian dailies on Sunday.

Still, in what Palestinians saw a goodwill gesture, Egyptian cooking oil began entering Gaza on Sunday, offsetting Israeli supplies cut off in retaliation for the border violence.

Palestinians in Gaza have been flying balloons and kites carrying incendiary devices across the border into Israel, starting hundreds of fires.

Al-Ayyam said that according to emails obtained by the US-based Foreign Policy journal, Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor, seeks to push to close UNRWA and end the Palestinian refugee status.

Cleveland Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to Buffalo Bills
He's expected to make his practice debut Tuesday, though it's uncertain whether he'll play in Buffalo's preseason opener against Carolina on Thursday.

Tensions have escalated since late March when Hamas launched what would become regular mass protests along Israel's perimeter fence with Gaza.

Critics say it amounts to collective punishment of the coastal territory's two million residents.

Israel also imposed a blockade of Gaza that year, and the United Nations has since warned that the Strip would be "unlivable" by 2020 if the blockade is not lifted.

"The IDF (Israel Defence Forces) clarified to the ship´s passengers that they are violating the legal naval blockade and that any humanitarian merchandise can be transferred to Gaza through the (Israeli) Port of Ashdod", an Israeli military statement said. Hamas and other resistance groups have linked their fate to Israel freeing Palestinian security detainees.

The Tel Aviv regime may agree to a limited ceasefire with Palestinian resistance groups in the besieged Gaza Strip, Israeli officials have hinted.

The most serious such incident was in 2010, when Israeli commandos raided a Turkish ship, the Mavi Marmara, that was leading a flotilla to Gaza.
