Israeli Authorities: Palestinian who tried to stab shot

Israel has faced global criticism over its use of live fire after 10 days of protests and clashes along the fence in which its forces have killed 30 Palestinians, according to Gaza's Health Ministry.

The nine dead Palestinians, including a journalist, were buried in Gaza on Saturday.

Israel's defence minister has warned that protesters approaching the border fence endanger their lives, drawing condemnation from rights groups that said such seemingly broad open-fire rules are unlawful.

"There are no naive people in the Gaza Strip", Lieberman told Israel's public radio.

A Palestinian man was shot by an Israeli civilian after allegedly attempting to stab a second Israeli in a West Bank industrial park.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health said eight people were killed and more than a thousand injured during Friday's protests.

"We know that in many instances Hamas has used journalists and the media and the Red Crescent and ambulances to carry out terror activities", Lieberman alleged.

No IDF soldiers were hurt.

His brother Motazem, also a journalist, said he was next to him when he was shot.

Murtaja was wearing a flak jacket with "PRESS" clearly printed on the vest.

Deloire said his organization has demanded that Israeli forces explain their actions and investigate the shooting. The IDF said earlier Sunday tanks fired at three Palestinians who crossed the border and quickly returned to the enclave.

He further told the demonstrators that "the killing and wounding of yet more unarmed Palestinian protesters yesterday by Israeli forces in Gaza is an outrage", underlining that "firing live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians is illegal and inhumane and can not be tolerated".

Drawing global criticism for its use of live fire, Israel said it is doing what is necessary to stop violent protesters from damaging or breaching its fence with the blockaded enclave.

He was covering protests to the east of Khan Younis in the south of Gaza when he was hit, according to the health ministry.

Further adding, the Israeli authorities have violated the global human rights law in taking up arms against peaceful protesters.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged all parties to exercise maximum restraint, said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric.
