Israeli forces kill Palestinian journalist covering Gaza rally

The Defense Ministry’s Coordinator of the Government’s Activities in the Territories Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai

"My only dream is to travel, I wish to capture this scene from the air, not from the ground".

In northern Gaza, Majdi Ramadan Mousa Shbat, 38, died after he was shot in the neck with live fire. These were the lines of Yaser Murtaja, a photojournalist, a few days before he was killed. The demonstrations have been dubbed "The Great March of Return" of refugees and their descendants to ancestral homes now in Israel. Abu Amra said Murtaja was clearly marked as a journalist and wearing a helmet and protective vest.

Gaza City: Palestinian mourners in the Gaza Strip on Saturday buried their dead, including a journalist, after Israeli troops killed nine during the latest border clashes in a week of bloodshed. The events of that time are called "Nakba", or "catastrophe", by Palestinians.

Having failed to condemn Israel's premeditated slaughter last week, the European Union put out a statement Thursday night urging Palestinians to "avoid any incitement to violence" and to "remain strictly nonviolent", even though not a single Israeli has been reported injured as a result of the protests.

Among the injured were 290 children, 51 women, seven journalists, and three paramedics.

Observers sought an global investigation into the war crimes and said that the use of lethal force by the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) against unarmed civilians and those protected under worldwide law is a clear violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

Also in Australia, almost 1,000 demonstrators joined a protest rally in Melbourn dubbed "Free Palestine" to censure Israeli regime's brutal violence - including live fire - used against Palestinian protesters in occupied territories in recent days.

At least 31 Palestinians have been killed and 2,850 others injured by Israeli gunfire during peaceful protests on border of the Gaza Strip since last week, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

"In accordance with global human rights law, firearms may be used only in cases of extreme necessity, as a last resort, and in response to an imminent threat of death or risk of serious injury", the United Nations high commissioner statement stated. Several terror attacks have also been attempted since the protests began.

"Whatever we use, we are always targeted by Israeli forces".

The thirty-year-old father was shot in the abdomen by an Israeli sniper while covering the protests despite wearing a flak jacket labelled "press". "The number of patients with trauma injuries rose to 20 per week while it was 20 per month before November 2017", she added.

Israel is trying to say that Hamas is the organizer of the march but, according to the Washington Post, the demonstrations have drawn Palestinians from various factions.
