  • Killing of Palestinian journalist protested in Istanbul

The Israeli military has argued that Gaza militant groups are trying to turn the border area into a combat zone, and said it has a right to defend its sovereign border. An additional 1,554 Palestinians have been treated for inhalation of tear gas or injuries from rubber-coated steel pellets, Haaretz reported.

The first two Fridays - with far less on intervening days - saw tens of thousands gather near the border with Israel at five locations.

More than 30 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli gunfire since the start of "Flag Friday" demonstrations two weeks ago.

Violence has flared in the Gaza Strip since March 30, when Palestinians began protests along the border area with Israel.

The protests, planned to last six weeks, are calling for Palestinian refugees to return to their former homes, now inside Israel. Israel said it will not allow the right of return.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army said it troops responded with riot dispersal means in dealing with protestors in Gaza.

Others hurled stones and burning tyres near the frontier fence, where Israeli army sharpshooters are deployed.

Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum said Friday's events showed that Israel's attempts to "change the reality" have failed. The rioters also threw explosives and rocks toward the Israeli side of the border and attempted to fly a kite over to the Israeli side that had a firebomb attached to it.

LONDON • Russia was spying on former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia for at least five years before they were poisoned with a nerve agent, Britain's National Security Adviser Mark Sedwill said in a letter to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation released yesterday. He said it wasn't a "price tag" on casualties.

But Palestinians said protesters are being shot while posing no threat to soldiers, and United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the European Union had called for an independent investigation. On April 1, the USA blocked a draft resolution by the U.N. Security Council that called for an investigation into the deaths of the 17 Palestinian protesters who had been killed up until that point.

Israel claimed he was a paid member of Hamas, but produced no evidence.

According to initial reports, the four were said to be killed by Israeli army fire; the Palestinian Health Ministry reported that the bodies were taken to a hospital in the city.

No Israelis have been killed during the protests.
