Israeli police: Palestinian who tried to stab Israeli shot

Meanwhile, demonstrations continued throughout the day as hundreds of Palestinians set tires ablaze along the Gaza-Israel border fence in order to confuse Israeli Army snipers and impede visibility.

In all, 22 Palestinians were killed in Gaza over the past week, among them 16 involved in last Friday's protests, according to Gaza health officials. The health ministry also announced on Saturday the death of another man, bringing the number of those killed during Friday's protests to nine.

Yasser Murtaja reportedly died from a gunshot wound he sustained while filming Friday in an area engulfed in thick black smoke from protesters setting tires on fire. The thirty-year-old father was shot in the abdomen by an Israeli sniper while covering the protests despite wearing a flak jacket labelled "press". "RSF condemns absolutely the deliberate shooting of journalists by the Israeli army".

Bensouda added that her office had launched a "preliminary" probe ahead of a possible prosecution over the use of force "in Palestine" in recent years.

Palestinians have marched to the fence as part of a six-week protest, dubbed "The Great March of Return", demanding the right to return for those driven out of their homeland.

Israeli forces have also shot dead more than 30 unarmed Palestinian protesters who began the Great March of Return demonstrations on 30 March. "The IDF uses means such as warnings, riot dispersal means, and as a last resort firing live rounds in a precise, measured way", it said Saturday.

U.S. presidential envoy Jason Greenblatt said it was the responsibility of Palestinian leaders to "communicate loudly and clearly that protesters should march peacefully", remain outside the 500m (1,640ft) "buffer zone" designated by Israel, and "not approach the border fence in any way".




"There are no innocent people in the Gaza Strip", Avigdor Lieberman told Israel's public radio on Sunday, claiming that all the Gazans are affiliated with the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas. It has also devastated Gaza's economy, made it virtually impossible for people to enter and exit the territory, and left residents with just a few hours of electricity a day. "And that if there is unjustified and unlawful recourse to firearms, resulting in death, that may amount to a willful killing", Elizabeth Throssell said in Geneva. Funeral held in Rafah, Gaza on April 07, 2018.

Israel says it has only opened fire when necessary to stop damage to the border fence, infiltrations and attempted attacks.

"Anyone who operates drones above IDF soldiers needs to understand he's putting himself in danger", Israel's defense minister stated regarding the death of a Palestinian photojournalist.

Among the injured were 290 children, 51 women, seven journalists, and three paramedics.

"The silence from global powers with the responsibility of bringing a just settlement of the Israel-Palestine conflict must end", said Corbyn at the Downing Street protest rally.

Israeli military officials responded by saying they have never deliberately opened fire on reporters.
