Palestinian killed by Israeli fire in border clashes

Arab media is reporting that Israel and Qatar have reached an agreement whereby the rich Gulf State, known to have funded Hamas terror in the past, will be allowed to send money to the Gaza Strip as long as it is used exclusively to pay the long overdue salaries of the enclave's public servants. Israel's continued campaign of excessive and indiscriminate violence against the people of Gaza has persisted with impunity and has been emboldened by Tel Aviv's strategic alliance with the current administration of the United States, the official said.

Israel justifies its blockade by the need to contain Hamas and accused the islamist movement that runs the enclave of orchestrating the protests for "terrorists".

The security delegation will discuss measures to stabilize the current cease-fire and prevent friction on the Gaza Strip border, but talks will not address halting tomorrow's return marches, according to Ma'an.

Israeli officials rarely comment publicly on the efforts by Egypt and others to restore calm and ease humanitarian conditions in Gaza.

The Israeli military said the teens had attempted to damage the border fence and "were apparently involved in placing an improvised explosive device" near it.

Recent weeks have seen efforts by the United Nations and Egypt result in Qatari-funded fuel deliveries for Gaza, easing a severe electricity shortage.




On Friday 26 October, mass protests at the perimeter fence resulted in five Palestinians being killed and over 200 injured.

At least 218 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in the demonstrations and clashes along the border since late March.

In a statement after a meeting of their leaders in Gaza on Thursday, Hamas and Islamic Jihad said the marches would continue. It gave their ages as 14 and 15.

Israeli war planes fired one missile at an empty field east of Rafah town in the Gaza Strip, and another airstrike was carried out on a military facility in the central Gaza Strip.

Israel and Hamas battled three wars since 2008, and are observing a ceasefire regularly questioned since the last conflict of the 2014.
