Israeli jets target Hamas positions in Gaza

Israeli jets target Hamas positions in Gaza

President Donald Trump's advisor on Israel-Palestinian negotiations said the US would offer "an outstretched hand" to Gaza-but only when the Hamas leadership "renounces violence and ceases to threaten its neighbors". "We went there to prove to the Israelis that we're steadfast in our connection to land and our desire to return one day" said a relative of Jehad's.

Palestinians say protesters are being shot while posing no threat to soldiers.

Earlier Monday, Israeli fighter jets struck a Hamas target in Gaza, in response to two explosive devices found near Israel's border with the territory, the military said. Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot reported that the video was recorded in December. According to Zahalka, the public defending and praising for the actions shown in the video by Israeli ministers and politicians promote such behavior.

The video was filmed by a soldier who was not part of the unit of the soldiers who fired the shot, added the IDF.

"The issue of sniper fire is not something new at all, but it is time for the world to see and to believe what we have been saying all along".

Mr. Lieberman also said that Yasser Murtaja, a photographer in Gaza who was killed by Israeli sniper fire as he covered the latest protest, on Friday, was a member of Hamas's military wing and used his camera drone to gather information about Israel's deployment along the border.

After a one-day investigation of the incident, the military said in a statement released on Tuesday that "it should be noted that these do not suit the degree of restraint expected of Israel Defense Forces soldiers and will be dealt by commanders accordingly".

Haim Jelin, a legislator from Israel's opposition centrist Yesh Atid party, and a resident of nearby Kibbutz Beeri, agreed with the government in rejecting United Nations and European Union calls for an inquiry into Israel's killing of protesters.

Israel has fought three wars with Hamas since 2008 and says the blockade of Gaza is necessary to isolate the Islamist movement. Israeli NGO B'Tselem has even urged soldiers to disobey orders to shoot unarmed protesters.

The afternoon rally turn a sinister turn when a man in a blue shirt spat on an Israeli flag being held by Jewish demonstrators.

Jamal Zahalka of the Joint List, a political alliance of four Arab-dominated parties in Israel, said the video "indicates to the rule".

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.
