  • Palestinian killed as clashes intensify on Israel-Gaza border

Gaza City: Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian man on Friday during a seventh week of protests on the Gaza border, the health ministry in the enclave said.

Thousands came to protest along the security fence at the Gaza border today.

Since the rallies began some six weeks ago, at least 48 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred and hundreds more - possibly thousands - injured.

Inside the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian protesters have built a tent encampment with different tents corresponding to the villages and towns that were destroyed during the Nakba (in Arabic, the Catastrophe), in 1948.

Next week the U.S. Embassy in Israel is set to relocate to contested Jerusalem, a move that angered Palestinians who seek the eastern sector of the city for their capital.

The IDF's Gaza Division and Southern Command are deploying their vast forces in anticipation of violent riots along the Gaza border fence, Israeli media reported.

In recent Fridays, Palestinian protesters have burned tires along the fence, hurled stones at Israeli troops and flown incendiary kites over dry fields on the Israeli side of the border. He stressed that the protesters would be unarmed and peaceful, but also likened them to a "starving tiger", saying the residents of Gaza were so desperate that their actions were impossible to predict.

Israel says it will prevent any border breach.

"Despite growing global criticism".

The Aksi Indonesia Bebaskan Baitul Maqdis (Indonesian Action for the Liberation of Jerusalem) was held at the National Monument (Monas) Park in Central Jakarta on Friday.

"The Palestinians had, over the last 25 years, veto power over the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital". There are about 2 million Palestinians living in Gaza, and two thirds of them are either refugees or the descendants of refugees.
