Yesterday in Gaza Israeli forces killed Mohammed Sherif Badwan, 24, during the #GazaReturnMarch demonstration at the fence, east of Gaza city. Three other Palestinians from the al-Qassam brigades were killed in an exchange of fire and one Israeli soldier was also said to have been killed yesterday.

More than 100 were injured during the protest during which Palestinians climbed the wall around Karni crossing between Israel and Gaza.

The Israeli bombings of the Gaza Strip are ongoing.

    The author is a propagandist, not a journalist. Where are the photos from the funeral of the Israeli murdered by Hamas? Oh I mean an Israeli soldier “said to have been killed” by a sniper.

      Another feeble attempt to justify “Israel’s” slaughter and imprisonment of Palestinians in the occupied Gaza Strip. Yes, the Gaza Strip is still occupied by Israel under international law, including its gross violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, i.e., “Collective Punishment.”
      Palestinians, the indigenous inhabitants (for about 15,000 years) of the lands between the River and the Sea have every legal and moral right to respond with the little force they have to the litany of crimes and horrors inflicted against them by the entity known as “Israel.”

    The journalists of Haaretz reported the funeral without drawing attention in the same breath to any Palestinian mourning. Let us too name the Israeli casualty, Aviv Levi, the first from his side on that bloody perimeter since 2014, and recall with sadness that any violent death is horrible and that Levi was no more responsible than the average Israeli for the Palestinian suffering that is in so much danger, which justifies Zainoun’s photojournalism, of being ignored in the West. Levi’s death seems to deserve the word ‘fluke’ – his body armour failed surprisingly, perhaps with a splinter flying into his neck. Haaretz now expects the fire kite campaign to dwindle and the blockade conditions to be eased.
    This does not alter the moral balance of the conflict, still one which no Palestinian can enter with the slightest rational expectation that this time it will be his turn to inflict rather than receive injury, though over long periods, months or years, fortune will deliver an anomaly. It’s still a conflict between armament that is all but irresistible and armament that is all but non-existent. The Palestinians are therefore acting in desperation and reacting against massive oppression. They are told to find a better way but what better or other way is there while Israel makes sure that everything stays the same and offers nothing better in the long term? Let Israel say what it thinks a fair long term settlement would be.
