Israel launched air strikes on naval targets in Gaza

Riyad Mansour demanded to know why Israel won't accept an independent and transparent investigation, as Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for.

"We appeal to the worldwide community and human rights organizations to assume their responsibilities and protect Palestinian youth, children and women", Muheisen said.

"We will not leave a stone unturned", he told reporters at United Nations headquarters in NY on Friday.

"They know in this environment not to indicate in any way they want to run against Abbas or seek to position themselves as successor as that is enough to provoke his wrath", she said. "They would allow people to demonstrate peacefully without threatening their lives".

A 15-year-old Palestinian youth died Saturday after being shot the previous day by Israeli troops during protests along the Gaza border, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

It said "hundreds of rioters" tried to burn the fence and enter Israel, and went on to say that the crowd threw explosives, firebombs and rocks, and that troops opened fire "in accordance with the rules of engagement", halting the crowd.

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah waves upon arriving in Gaza City on 13 March, having survived bomb attack.

The footage also showed large numbers of Gazans close to the border fence.

Also Sunday, the Israeli army said most of the deaths of Palestinians during the Gaza unrest have been unintentional.

"It does not have operational solutions, so it is cynically using Palestinian citizens to create provocations and to grab the attention of the worldwide community", the former IDF southern commander told the Jerusalem Post Conference in NY.

Israeli forces have killed 42 Palestinians since Gaza residents began staging protests along the border fence on March 30.

Another Palestinian was detained in the latter incident, and two more were caught trying to cross the border in a third case, the military said.

There were no immediate details on injuries, but ambulances rushed to the scene and took away dozens of wounded.

The Palestinians who staged this assault are no mere protesters. Education Under Occupation, Students for Justice in Palestine from campuses across the city, some attending their first demonstration, rallied on Boston Common and marched to the MA statehouse on April 21 in solidarity with young Palestinians on the front lines of the Great Return March in Gaza.
