  • Israeli jets target Gaza position after alleged 'infiltration attempt'

The 30-second long clip emerged at a time of escalating violence in the Gaza Strip, where Palestinian protesters have been taking part in protests in what is often termed a no-mans land at the border with Israel.

Defense Minister Lieberman "has the tendency to reach conclusions which the [Israeli army] or the Shin Bet are more cautious about", said Yossi Melman, an Israeli intelligence and security affairs reporter for the Israeli paper Maariv. There were no immediate reports on casualties from the retaliatory strikes.

According to NPR, a military spokesman said soldiers were instructed to use lethal fire "only at those posing a threat".

It was not clear what the engineering unit was working on, though Israel routinely carries out maintenance work on or near the border fence in an area it considers a buffer zone.

For the past two Fridays, tens of thousands of Palestinians have gathered near the border at five main sites across the Gaza Strip for what has been dubbed the "Great March of Return". No Israelis have been hurt.

Israel has rejected calls for a probe and insists its open-fire rules for Gaza will not change. But Hamas stopped short of claiming him as one of its own, as Hamas has written on banners and posters for others killed on the border during recent protests.

Israel confirmed the strikes, saying they were retaliation for gun fire across the border.

Israeli defence minister Avigdor Liberman said the sniper "deserves a medal".

The International Criminal Court's prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, warned both Israel and Hamas that each could be committing crimes - as if a terror group using violence to breach a border and a nation defending itself are equivalent.

When he is hit they can be heard to cheer "wow, what a video", praising the shooter for hitting the Palestinian man in the head and calling him a "son of a bitch".

"Journalists are civilians, and security forces have a duty to ensure that they can work safely", said Sherif Mansour, Middle East coordinator for the Committee to Protect Journalists.

The Palestinians consider the eastern part of Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. It says it has no choice but to use live ammunition against violent "rioters". Israeli sources said that at least one of the bullets had hit an Israeli home nearby.

After a bomb was set off as a military vehicle was passing along the defensive separation barrier with Gaza on Wednesday night, Israeli aircraft targeted "military objectives" in the Gaza Strip.
