Israeli Troops Kill Three Palestinians in Gaza, Injure over 500

Israeli troops fired live rounds and tear gas as thousands of Palestinians protested near the Gaza border fence on Friday, with some demonstrators burning tires, throwing stones and flying blazing kites.

Over 129 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since protests began eleven weeks ago, the majority of which were killed near the border as troops use lethal force to prevent any infiltration attempts.

The 21-year-old medic, who was dressed in white uniform, was shot in the chest by an IOF sniper during protests on the Gaza border on 1 June as she attended wounded protesters. Of 620 people wounded, 120 were from live fire, they said.

Since the beginning of the protests along the fence at the Gaza-Israel border on March 30, at least two Palestinian journalists were killed and dozens more were wounded by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) despite wearing the necessary marked vests.

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

Protests continued along the border between Gaza and Israel on Friday on the occasion of Naksa Day.

Israel's ambassador to Argentina, Ilan Sztulman, retweeted a message from Hamas, the militant group that rules Gaza, thanking Argentina for the cancellation. Israel claimed Hamas had intentionally provoked the violence, a charge Hamas denied.

Palestinian U.N. Ambassador Riyad Mansour told reporters Friday that the Kuwaiti resolution was "extremely balanced", and he said nearly the same text will be put to a vote in the General Assembly.

"What happened today adds to our argument and to the urgency of providing worldwide protection" for Palestinian civilians, he said.

Israel says Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas are using the protests as an excuse to carry out attacks.

The World Cup warm-up match, planned for Saturday in Jerusalem, was called off Tuesday after a campaign by the Palestinians, with Israeli newspapers pointing fingers at Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev, who was behind the game's relocation from the northern Israeli city of Haifa to the divided holy city.

The status of Jerusalem, always a key sticking point in the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, surged back to centre-stage when Trump tore up decades of USA policy to recognise it as Israel's capital in December.

The Israeli army said that it had repelled around 10,000 Palestinians who converged on five points of the border. His family said he was taking part in a protest in Rafah, in southern Gaza, when he was shot. Israel was established in the wake of the Holocaust, marks an annual remembrance day for the 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis and is home to the world's largest population of Holocaust survivors. Despite US knows Jerusalem is connected with faith but their shift has made this issues more sensitive and road to peace seems in Israel Palestine conflict seems getting more challenging.

"It is unfortunate that instead of condemning the terrorists of Hamas, some countries are looking to satisfy their domestic political needs by bashing Israel at the United Nations", Danon said in a statement.

There have been no Israeli casualties from the more than two months of confrontations but farmland on the Israeli side has been damaged by fire from the kites and balloons.

"We are not asking for the moon", one protester, Amer Abu Khalaf, said, explaining the protest aimed to "break the siege and have the world recognise [Palestine's] right to return".
