"I know the situation is very, very hard", Israeli farmer Daniel Rahamim said about economic hardship in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave ruled by Hamas, an Islamist group that advocates Israel's destruction.

Israeli soldiers abducted, from Saturday evening until Sunday at dawn, 28 Palestinians, from their homes in several parts of the occupied West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem.

It is unclear if there were any casualties among the Palestinians.

The six other deaths included three gunmen killed in what Israel said were attempts to attack the border and three men who were struck by Israeli tank fire.

The Israeli military responded with riot dispersal means, and fired in accordance with the rules of engagement, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said in a statement.

Last week, Israel's Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman denounced the calls made by the United Nations and the European Union for investigating the Israeli army's violent suppression of protests.

"Today we're sending a message that our struggle is without arms and guns, and we will wait and see if the world receives the message and pressures Israel to stop its crimes against our people", senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar said Friday at a rally in Gaza City.

Venkat Rahul Ragala adds 4th gold to India's weightlifting haul at CWG
India had to face the ignominy of having been suspended by the International Weightlifting Federation for dope-related offences. Kylie Masse took gold in the 100m backstroke just two days after setting a Commonwealth Games record in her first heat.

On March 30, Israeli forces killed 19 Palestinians as a protest by tens of thousands led to clashes and the bloodiest day since a 2014. "The IDF does not intentionally target journalists".

"Journalists reported being targeted by both live fire and tear gas up to 500 meters from the Gaza-Israel border [sic] fence", the watchdog group stated.

In addition to the nine dead, at least 491 were wounded by Israeli gunfire, the health ministry in the Hamas run enclave said.

The Israeli forces are "to respect the rights to peaceful assembly and expression and to use, to the extent possible, non-violent means to discharge their duties".

His brother Motazem, also a journalist, said he was next to him when he was shot.

Mourners and journalists carry the body of Palestinian journalist Yasser Murtaja, during his funeral in Gaza City on April 7, 2018. Israel has no official death toll figures.

Among the weapons employed by the Israeli military to fight the smoke were giant fans next huge jets of water. Footage taken of the wounded journalist shortly after he was shot shows medics frantically bandaging his chest and trying to connect an IV drip.
