Israeli Sniper Targets, Kills Journalist in "PRESS" Vest

Violence spiked again on Friday when Israeli forces opened fire as thousands protested along the border, and nine Palestinians, including a journalist, were killed.

The Palestinian Maan News Agency published Sunday a video for a Palestinian woman reportedly shot by an Israeli sniper in Eastern Gaza.

The report further referred to concerns by the Israeli army sources that in case of many Palestinian casualties, the worldwide community might renew diplomatic pressure on the regime.

The series of current events began two weeks ago when tens of thousands of Gazans rioted and burned tires on the border fence separating the Gaza Strip and Israel.

At least 491 people were also wounded by Israeli live fire, the ministry said.

Yariv Oppenheimer, a member of Peace Now, a non-government organisation in Israel, lamented the deaths and urged the Israeli army to exercise restraint.

A Palestinian farmer was also killed last week the before dawn on Friday, March 30th, the first day of the massive demonstration.

There were discrepancies in Palestinian reports on the Gaza death toll from those clashes.

In a visit to Khuzaa camp on Friday, Yahya Sinwar, Hamas' Gaza chief, told the gathered crowd that the "Israeli plan of starvation and siege" had "failed to incite the Palestinian people against the resistance".

In a statement on Saturday, the Palestinian ministry said 79 injured Palestinians were in a serious condition.

"The IDF will not allow any harm of the security infrastructure or the security fence that protects Israeli civilians, and will act against the violent rioters and terrorists who attempt to do so", it added. No Israelis have been injured.

Unemployment stands at 50 percent and there are recurrent shortages of power and medical supplies.

On Saturday, the European Union raised questions over whether Israeli troops engaged in "proportionate use of force".

The Israeli military on Thursday threatened Hamas with a tougher military response to another planned Friday demonstration on Israel's border with Gaza.

Its main message is to call for the right of return for Palestinian refugees who were driven from their homes in the territories taken over by Israel during the 1948 war, known to Arabs as the Nakba.

Five Israelis - three settlers and two soldiers - were killed by Palestinians in the West Bank during the same period.
