Israeli drones burn tyres, protest camps in southern Gaza

Israeli drones burn tyres, protest camps in southern Gaza

Israeli security forces killed three Palestinians and fired tear gas into crowds of protesters on Friday in clashes at the Gaza border fence.

After Muslim prayers at noon Friday, thousands of Gaza residents streamed toward five protest tent camps that were erected more than two months ago, each several hundred meters (yards) from the fence. Of those wounded, 92 were hit by live fire while the rest suffered from tear gas inhalation, the news agency said.

Abu Sabla's older brother, Mahmoud, said they were both regulars at the protests against Israel launched on March 30 and in which the army has killed at least 123 Palestinians, according to Gaza medics.

Israel's deadly tactics in confronting the protests have drawn global condemnation.

The only ones turning Gaza residents' lives into a living hell are the PLO - in its role as the Palestinian Authority - which has cut down the Gazans' electricity; and Hamas, which urges them to rush the border fences. Israel says Hamas has intentionally provoked the violence, a charge Hamas denies.

The UN General Assembly will hold an emergency meeting next Wednesday at 3 p.m.to vote on an Arab-backed resolution on Gaza, the body's President Miroslav Lajcak announced Friday.

Palestinian UN Ambassador Riad Mansur said that Kuwait's resolution draft was "completely balanced" and stated that his draft will be nearly entirely identical.

Mansour said the US veto triggered the request and that Friday's violence "adds to our argument and to the urgency of providing worldwide protection" to Palestinian civilians.

The march coincided with the annual "Jerusalem Day", instituted by Iran to protest Israeli rule of the holy city. More than 120 Palestinians have been killed so far. He said the demonstrations would continue until Palestinians achieve their demand for a right of return to ancestral lands.

US President Donald Trump's recent transfer of the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem sparked protests in the Gaza Strip in which dozens of Palestinians were killed.

Critics say it amount to collective punishment of the territory's two million residents.

"Western countries, particularly Americans and Zionists, have been trying for years to use threats against the Islamic Republic of Iran as a means to impose their will on the Iranian people, but they basically are not able to carry out their threats against the Iranian people, and the main reason for their inability is the might of [the] nation and armed forces to respond to any possible aggression", Jawani claimed.

During the war, Israel seized control of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, as well as the Syrian Golan Heights and Egyptian Sinai Peninsula.

Emmanuel Nahshon, spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry, described Gaza protesters on Twitter as "hateful morons" and "Hamas Jugend", the latter a play on "Hitler Youth" in German.

Israel has long refused to admit Palestinian refugees from the 1948 war or their millions of descendants, saying they should stay in a future Palestinian state.
