Arab League to Hold "Emergency" Meeting over IOF Gaza Killing

Friday's riot perceptions from Gaza and the U.N

On Friday, tens of thousands of Palestinians converged on the Gaza Strip's roughly 45-kilometer-long eastern border with Israel to reaffirm their right to return to their ancestral homes in historical Palestine.

With Monday's death, this would raise to 18 the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops on Friday. Spokesperson of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, confirmed that Fares al-Ruqab, 29, succumbed to his wounds on Monday.

United Nations chief Antonio Guterres called for an "independent and transparent investigation" and European Union diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini followed suit, calling in a statement for a probe into Israel's use of live ammunition.

"My respect goes to the Israeli soldiers who are guarding Israel's borders, allowing Israelis to celebrate the holiday [of Passover] in peace", Netanyahu said in a statement, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz.

The statement also expressed "grave concern at the situation at the border" and reiterated that he Palestinians have the right to "peaceful protest".

Israel has defended its soldiers' actions, when they opened fire March 30on Palestinians who strayed from a main protest camp and approached the heavily fortified fence cutting off the blockaded enclave.

The military said its soldiers opened fire only when necessary against those throwing stones and firebombs or rolling tyres.

"Our legitimate protest against Israeli military occupation, colonisation and apartheid is granted in worldwide law and must be protected by the global community", Dr. Husam Zomlot said.

The attacks by Israeli forces left 18 Palestinians martyred and almost 1,500 injured.

Hamas said five of the dead were members of its armed wing. Israel said eight of the 15 belonged to Hamas, designated a terrorist group by Israel and the West, and two others came from other militant factions.

There were no casualties among Israelis.

But video from the scene showed at least a handful of incidents in which people appear to have been shot either far from the border or while they were not actively rioting. There have not been any other reported protests in Tel Aviv in response to the border events.

But the USA has, under President Donald Trump, unilaterally declared Jerusalem al-Quds the "capital" of Israel, a highly controversial move condemned by Palestinians and most world countries alike.

He urged the parliaments of the Islamic and non-Islamic states in the world to defend the legitimate rights of the Palestinians and stop the provocative policies of the Zionists through adopting some appropriate mechanisms and condemning them.

The date is commemorated by Palestinians as their "nakba", or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands were uprooted in the 1948 war over Israel's creation.
