Palestinian killed and 400 wounded in latest Gaza protest

Palestinian killed and 400 wounded in latest Gaza protest

Several thousand people are rallying in Jordan to mark the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call their "nakba", or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands were uprooted from their homes in the Mideast war over Israel's creation.

The Hamas-run Gaza health ministry said one man was killed after being shot in the chest, and at least 146 were wounded in clashes with the IDF.

The protests also took place at the contact points in different cities, including the northern entrance of Bethlehem and Ramallah.

Next week the U.S. Embassy in Israel is set to relocate to contested Jerusalem, a move that angered Palestinians who seek the eastern sector of the city for their capital.

Israel says it has a right to defend its border and has accused Hamas of using the protests as a cover for attacking the border.

Ashraf al-Qedra, health ministry spokesman in Gaza, said in an e-mailed press statement that the Israeli army has shot and killed 47 Palestinians since March 30, with six bodies still unreturned.

A Palestinian man is rushed to an ambulance at the border fence.

Coli outbreak reaches Minnesota, with 10 cases reported
Since last week, another four people have gone into kidney failure, and an additional 23 have been sickened overall. Numerous people sickened across the country ate chopped lettuce that had been sold in bagged form to restaurants.

The latest round of Hamas-led riots at the Israel-Gaza border resulted in one Palestinian dead and 170 injured as rioters set gas lines ablaze.

The area was quickly engulfed in thick black smoke from the burning tires. Israel and Egypt maintain an economic blockade of the strip, which has the highest unemployment rate in the world and has become far poorer than the other main Palestinian territory, the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

In recent weeks, soldiers have fired from behind sand berms.

Egypt opens the crossing from time to time, mainly to allow people in special categories, including medical patients and Gaza residents studying overseas, to leave the territory or return to it.

In the Turkish city of Istanbul, several thousand people protested against the relocation of the United States embassy to al-Quds, holding Palestinian and Turkish flags and carrying signs reading "Palestine belongs to the Palestinians" and "al-Quds belongs to Muslims".

Before the protests ended for the day, dozens of demonstrators broke into the Gaza side of the Kerem Shalom goods crossing where humanitarian supplies are delivered to Gaza and ignited a pipeline that delivers gas from Israel and torched a goods conveyor belt, causing damage estimated at more than $9 million, Israeli officials said.
