Israel fires at target in Gaza, draws Russian Federation rebuke over Palestinian deaths

Palestinian journalist shot and killed in Gaza

The strike came a day after the chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court raised concerns that Israel and Hamas may have committed war crimes during the current spasm of violence. The protests are meant to last until May 15, the anniversary of Israel's founding, when Palestinians commemorate their mass uprooting during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.

The PA had argued at the time that its decisions were caused by Hamas collecting government revenues in Gaza without sending them back to the Ramallah-based authority, whereas Hamas has accused the PA of deliberately applying further economic pressure on the impoverished coastal territory, which has been under an Israeli-imposed blockade for almost 11 years.

In addition to 26 Palestinians killed in protests, three were killed by Israeli tank fire and three were gunmen apparently trying to sneak through the border fence.

"His use of the drone was to show that Gaza has a handsome and vibrant face", said his 24-year-old brother, Mutasim.

In an official statement Tuesday the Israeli occupation army announced the action took place on December 22, 2017 and happened in the context of a "response to a violent riot", accusing the man who was standing near the border fence in no apparent act of violence of being suspected of organizing violent incidents. It has said some of those at the border tried to damage the fence, planted explosives or hurled fire bombs.

After gunning down an unarmed Palestinian youth, the soldiers can be heard cheering and congratulating each other.

"As for the unauthorised filming of an operational event, the distribution of the filmed material and the statements made there, it should be noted that these do not suit the degree of restraint expected of Israel Defence Force (IDF) soldiers and will be dealt with by commanders accordingly", the statement said.

The military said the man was a main instigator in the clashes and was shot in the leg and wounded.

Apple said to work on touchless iPhones
Apple's latest iPhones have a feature called 3D Touch that responds differently depending on different finger pressures. These panels will curve inward gradually from top to bottom, and not down at the edges like Samsung's recent flagships.
