GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Thousands of Palestinians, some burning Israeli flags and torching tires, staged a mass protest on Gaza’s sealed border with Israel for a third consecutive Friday, as part of a pressure campaign to break a decade-old blockade of their territory.

Israeli live fire from across the border fence killed a 28-year-old Palestinian man and wounded at least 223, Gaza health officials said.

The death brought to 28 the number of protesters killed in two weeks, with more than 1,500 wounded by Israeli fire since March 30, they said.

The marches have been organized by Gaza’s Hamas rulers, but large turnouts on two preceding Fridays were also driven by desperation among the territory’s 2 million residents who have been enduring a crippling border closure by Israel and Egypt since 2007.

    I really do not understand why Hamas parents let their kids take dangerous protest agains Israel? It does not make sende to me.

    If It comes to me, I do myself, I do not let my kids get hurt and killed.

    Most Hamas or Palestine Parents teach thrir children to be brave and hate Jews. So as long as People of Hamas keep teaching to hate Jews— there is no peace— very dangerous to compromise with people who hate you for centuries.

    This demontration will not bring a goid result to Palistine, but create the worse condition and at the end of the day, Hamas people who the one losser and Israel is the winner. Very sad indeed.

    What you reap what you sow. God say:

    Let us pray for peace in Middle East

    • You do not understand because you do not live in a jail. No Muslims ‘hate Jews’. The Palestinians may hate those Israelis who kicked them out of their home. How is it so difficult to see the difference? The whole world is starting to see the Israeli ‘killer mentality’ (although international media, especially in the USA, shows a totally wrong picture of the situation).
