Gaza man dies of wounds sustained in border protest

There were no early reports of deaths or injuries at the tented camps near the 25-mile (40km) border fence which is the site of what Palestinians call "The Great March of Return".

Sir, - Barry Meyler claims that the Israelis have shot over "1,000 unarmed protesters and killed 42 people" during the current Hamas-organised protests on the Gaza border (May 3rd).

Gaza: A Palestinian man died on Thursday from gunshot wounds he sustained during last week's protests along the Gaza-Israeli border fence, the Gaza Health Ministry said. Army gunfire has killed at least 43 Palestinians on the frontier over the last month. Palestinians mark it as Nakba day, meaning 'Day of the Catastrophe'.

The protesters were calling for the right of Palestinian refugees and their descendants, who according to the United Nations make up around two-thirds of Gaza's population, to return to their homeland inside what is now Israel.

If you Google " Cinco de Mayo ", as I just did, you'll find the internet flush with articles like " What Is Cinco de Mayo ? ". Watson said they will not only be celebrating Cinco de Mayo but will also have a Kentucky Derby party starting at 2 P.M.

The Israeli army's use of live fire during the protests has drawn global criticism and calls for an independent probe - which Israel has rejected.

Palestinian mourners carry the body of 15-year-old Palestinian teenager Azzam Oweida, who succumbed to his wounds a day after he was shot by Israeli forces in clashes along the Gaza border, during his funeral in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip on April 28, 2018.

Israel rules that out, concerned it would lose its Jewish majority. "If they don't allow us back, at least they should give us a state". Palestinians deny those allegations. While the peace talks are stuck, Israel, which withdrew settlers and soldiers from Gaza in 2005 after a 38-year occupation, has expanded its settlements in the occupied West Bank.

The move has deeply angered the Palestinians, who see the Israeli-annexed eastern sector of Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. "We do believe the Israelis have a right to defend themselves", he said.
