Palestinian killed near Israeli checkpoint in occupied West Bank

Bitcoin could be the financial savior for cash-strapped terror group Hamas

Israel has started construction of an "above-ground barrier" on the Gaza border to keep terrorists from infiltrating overland, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday.

Thousands of protesters gathered Friday afternoon in eastern Gaza Strip joining the 45th weekly anti-Israel rallies and protests, known as the "Great March of Return" to break the Israeli blockade.

Turkey has observers in the Norway-led team tasked with promoting security for Palestinians in Hebron, which is holy to both Muslims and Jews and has been a flashpoint in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Netanyahu gave no further details but a defence ministry statement said that work on the structure began on Thursday. "It's massive and especially strong", the ministry said in an accompanying video clip.

For some , it will be a case of asking which horses have been at their most impressive this season that will give them the clues as to which Grand National horses to bet on .

The ministry said Turkey supports a two-state solution based on the 1967 borders between Israel and Palestine and "will continue to closely monitor the situation in Hebron with this understanding". I would also like to make it clear: "if the quiet is not maintained in Gaza, we will make the decisions even in the elections period and will not hesitate to act", Netanyahu said, as quoted in the statement of his press service.

The fence's construction comes after months of mass protests by Palestinians in Gaza along the border.

At least 246 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza since March 30, the majority during border protests but also by tank fire and air strikes.

Local media reports in the West Bank said that Israeli forces stormed the village and clashed with dozens of residents in the afternoon, adding that Israeli soldiers fired tear gas and opened fire at the demonstrators who threw stones at the soldiers. Since 2008, Israel has fought three wars with Hamas.
