Gazan dies of wounds, death toll rises to 18

UN calls for inquiry after Palestine death toll rises to 17

Adli Abu Taha, who filmed the scene on his mobile phone, told The Associated Press that Abu Shanab had thrown stones close to the fence before joining the group for Friday prayers.

The vast majority of Gaza residents are descendants of Palestinians who fled or were driven from communities in what is now Israel. While Hamas claimed Monday that 18 had died, the official news agency of the Palestinian Authority had the number at 16.

The Israeli military has said those killed by troops were men who were involved in violence and who belonged to Hamas and other militant factions.

"The US must play a more positive role in ending the Gaza blockade and helping Palestinians and Israelis build a future that works for all". These figures could not be independently verified.

The officials did not say how troops would respond if "red lines" were crossed.

There were no casualties among Israelis. Video footage showed that in one case a rioter, whom the army included in its list of Hamas members, appeared to be shot while running away from the border.

Chinese space lab expected to re-enter on Sunday night
The space station has been slowing down and when it can't go fast enough to stay in orbit, it will reenter the earth's atmosphere. Since then it has been orbiting gradually closer and closer to Earth on its own while being monitored.

The Israeli military accused Hamas of releasing videos that were either incomplete, edited or "completely fabricated". Israel's defense minister on Sunday rejected global calls for an investigation into deadly violence along Gaza's border with Israel, saying troops acted appropriately and fired only at Palestinian protesters who posed a threat.

The United States on Saturday blocked a draft UN Security Council statement urging restraint and calling for an investigation of clashes on the Gaza-Israel border, diplomats said.

Israel's defence minister rejected calls for an independent investigation by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Federica Mogherini, the European Union's foreign policy chief, and other leaders. "All the fatalities were aged 18-30, several of the fatalities were known to us, and at least two of them were members of Hamas commando forces", he said. It was the area's deadliest violence since a war four years ago.

On Friday, tens of thousands converged on the Gaza Strip's roughly 45-kilometer-long eastern border with Israel to reaffirm their right to return to their ancestral homes in historical Palestine.

Land Day is an annual Palestinian commemoration of six Arab Israeli citizens killed by Israeli forces in 1976, during demonstrations against government land confiscations in northern Israel. The date is mourned by Palestinians as their "nakba", or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands were uprooted in the 1948 Mideast war over Israel's creation.
