Israeli minister warns of resuming targeted assassinations of Hamas leaders

Early in the morning, the Israeli military used a new tactic, dropping leaflets into Gaza warning residents to not approach the border. By the end of the day, Israeli army snipers have killed four Palestinians, including 15-year-old Mohammad Ayyoub, from Jabalya, who was shot in the head, injured 729, including 45 children, among them 156 hit by live ammunition, four of them in critical condition, and around 20 shot in the neck and head, as reported by the Ministry of Health.

Saeb Erekat, the PLO Secretary General, told reporters at his Ramallah office in the West Bank that Abbas has issued the aforementioned directives to the representative, in light of the continued Israeli assaults on the unarmed protestors in Gaza. It evokes a longtime call for Palestinian refugees to regain ancestral homes in the territories under Israeli occupation.

"Hamas has to know that any attack on Israeli army commanders on the borders of Gaza would renew the targeted killing of Hamas leaders".

Gaza's Health Ministry said those killed Friday included three men in their 20s and a 15-year-old boy.

"Hamas is using you to carry out acts of terror", the pamphlets read. Hamas denies this. Although organizers say the main protest is meant to be peaceful, some protesters have advanced toward the border from the encampments to hurl stones and burning tires near the fence.
