Dressed in White Uniform, IOF Kills Palestinian Nurse on Gaza Border

US vetoes UN resolution offering 'protection' for Palestinians | TheHill

According to the health ministry in Gaza, another 40 Palestinians were wounded by Israeli gun fire in Friday's clashes.

The Hamas targets struck by Israel late on Saturday night included three Hamas military compounds and weapons production and storage sites, the IDF said in a statement. Earlier this week, Gaza militants fired a large barrage at Israel, which responded with heavy strikes on Gaza installations.

Imperatively, it has been reported that Al-Najar was wearing her white nurse coat when she was targeted, ruling out the possibility of the incident, being an accident.

On Saturday evening, militants in the Palestinian enclave fired two projectiles at southern Israel, where air raid sirens sent residents to bomb shelters. Israel's Iron Dome air defense system has intercepted the second missile launched out of Gaza on Israel on Sunday, the army press service said in a statement. Israeli officers have previously said that army snipers target only people posing a threat, but that the bullets can sometimes run through them or ricochet, hitting bystanders.

Palestinian mourners carry the body of a volunteer paramedic Razan Najjar, 21, during her funeral in town of Khan Younis, Southern Gaza Strip, Saturday, June 2, 2018.

Tension between Israel and the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip has been growing up since March 30, when the Palestinians organized rallies and protests near the border with Israel. Since then, over 110 more Palestinians have been killed, including journalists and children. About 13,000 demonstrators have been wounded, more than 3,000 by Israeli gunfire.

More than two million Palestinians are packed into the narrow coastal enclave. "It is hard to see how it squares with Israel's obligation as occupying power to ensure the welfare of the population of Gaza".

It added that the soldiers also stopped a Palestinian ambulance at the scene, and prevented the medics from approaching the Palestinian, before he bled to death. A resulting ceasefire came into effect Wednesday morning.

"The worldwide community should pay more attention to the Palestinian issue, as much as any other issue in the region, and efforts should be made to resume peace negotiations stalled since 2014", the envoy said.

"Shooting at medical personnel is a war crime under the Geneva conventions", the PMRC said in a statement, demanding "an immediate worldwide response to Israeli humanitarian law violations in Gaza". In response, the troops fired towards the terrorist, killing him.

Last month, Washington relocated its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which was occupied by Israel in 1967 and represents the heart of the decades-long Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Low-level demonstrations have continued since.
