Riyad Mansour calls to set up independent commission to investigate Israeli crimes

In stark contrast to what Gandhi sought

Rights groups say orders allowing troops to use potentially lethal force against unarmed protesters are unlawful.

"The Palestinians are 300 metres closer to the Israeli border than they were last week because this protest is about a key issue - the right of return".

"These cowardly [Hamas] leaders use women and children as human shields so that they can continue digging tunnels and carry out terrorist attacks against Israel, ' Lieberman said in a statement, adding "we already saw how they used UNRWA facilities as well as hospitals and mosques for terrorist purposes".

However, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon called on the worldwide body to condemn Hamas's use of children as a cover for their terror activities.

The European Union on Saturday urged an investigation of the killing of a Palestinian teen and called on Israel to stop using deadly force against peaceful Palestinian protestors.

"How does the killing of a child in #Gaza today help #peace?"

Yesterday's protest was dubbed "Friday of Kites", with protests flying messages to Israel on the border.




U.S. Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt put out his own tweet: "A full investigation by Israel of Mohammed Ayoub's death is underway so that we will be able to understand what happened". It doesn't! It fuels anger and breeds more killing.

Since March 30, which marks Palestine Land Day, the Palestinians have been peacefully staging protests along the eastern Gaza borders, calling for the implementation of the UN Resolution 194 which stipulates the return of Palestine refugees to their homes, as well as to lift the 11-year-old Israeli blockade in Gaza. "This tragic incident must be investigated", he wrote. More than 1,600 have been wounded by live rounds in the past three weeks, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

On Friday alone, 440 protesters were wounded by gunfire or needed treatment for tear gas inhalation, the ministry said.

Several thousand Palestinians participated in the protests Friday, the fourth large-scale demonstrations since late March. As the numbers peaked during the afternoon Israeli soldiers called out warnings in Arabic over loudspeakers to anyone who approached the border fence.

Before Friday, 28 Palestinian protesters had been killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli army fire from across the border fence since the protests began in late March.

More than 2 million Palestinians are packed into the narrow coastal enclave. The numbers could not be verified by Israel.

Palestine's ambassador to the United Nations has called on the UN Security Council to form an independent commission tasked with looking into Israel's "crimes" including the killing and wounding of Palestinian protesters in the besieged Gaza Strip.
