  • Israelis may be anxious but Palestinians in Gaza have actually been killed

Rioters near the border fence with Israel reportedly threw grenades, pipe bombs, and rocks at soldiers.

But Hamas leader Yehiyeh Sinwar contends that Israel's borders are not internationally recognized and therefore do not need to be respected.

Israeli fire has killed 44 Palestinians and wounded some 1,700 since the protests began on March 30th. Seven people were critically hurt, including a 16-year-old who was shot in the face, Gaza medics said.

Al-Quds also said Israeli police used force to push Palestinians who gathered at Bab al-Rahmeh Muslim cemetery, adjacent to the wall of Jerusalem's Old City, out of the cemetery.

"Indonesia strongly condemns the (Trump's) decision", Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo said in his speech Friday before a trilateral clerical meeting between Afghanistan, Indonesia and Pakistan.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted Palestine Liberation Organization Executive Committee member Ahmad Majdalani saying that the leadership is going to take decisions on Monday in response to the USA and Israeli measures.

Next week's climax will focus on the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem, taking place on Monday, and commemorating Nakba (catastrophe) day, when Palestinians mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel and the birth of the Palestinian refugee problem.

Israel has repeatedly expressed concern over the possibility of a mass breach of the Gaza fence, in which Palestinians would stream across with terrorists among them, wreaking havoc. More than two-thirds of Gaza residents are descendants of refugees.

The protests are part of what the Palestinians call the "Great March of Return" rally which has been organized every Friday at five different locations along Gaza's eastern border with Israel since March 30.

From there, smaller groups moved closer to the border fence.

In a news conference in Gaza on Thursday he said repeatedly that he hoped to avoid bloodshed, but gave no indication that Hamas would try to hold back the expected large crowds. Some flew kites with burning rags attached.

"Palestine has the right and the support of Chile to be a free, independent, sovereign and autonomous country, and the Palestinian people have the right to self-determination", the president said.

The papers also reported on the opening of Rafah crossing with Egypt for four days, starting Saturday.

The Department of State is proud to announce that the U.S. Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem will be dedicated on Monday, May 14.

Israel's military says an assailant has rammed his vehicle into a soldier in the West Bank, causing light injuries.
