15-year-old boy among 4 killed by Israeli snipers in Gaza

Palestinians in Gaza City wait in a queue to withdraw money from cash points after the decision of cutting the salaries by 30% was taken by the government officials on 10 May 2017

Paramedics who evacuated the child killed today indicated that he was shot with live ammunition to the head, at around 50 meters from the fence, east of Jabalia, with no evidence that the posed any threat to Israeli forces. His remarks Saturday arrived after a premier United Nations envoy at the region, Nikolay Mladenov, claimed it is "ridiculous to take at kiddies" and demanded a preliminary analysis. It doesn't! It fuels anger and breeds more killing. Children must be protected from violence, not exposed to it, not killed! "This tragic incident must be investigated", he wrote.

Palestinian envoy to the UN Riyad Mansour has called to set up an independent commission to investigate Israeli crimes.

As of 19:00, four Palestinians, including one child, have been killed by Israeli forces during the events, and 729, including 45 children, have been injured, according to the Ministry of Health (MoH) in Gaza. "A full investigation is needed to understand what happened and why".

Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith, reporting from the protest, said the Palestinians seemed determined to edge closer to the border.

Israel has accused Hamas of using the protests as a cover for carrying out attacks. Do not use weapons or take any violent action towards the Israeli security forces and the Israeli citizens.

In addition, at least 47 health personnel have been injured and 13 ambulances damaged by Israeli fire, according to the Health Ministry.

On Friday they fitted kites with cans of flammable liquid, which they flew across the border to start fires in Israel. "Authorities required Palestinian spouses of Jerusalem residents to obtain a residency permit with reported delays of several years to obtain them".

Earlier, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman blamed Hamas for the death of the boy. He added that "behind it stands a determined people that is backing up the army".

On Friday, protesters began gathering at sit-in protest camps near the border. The protests are meant to last six weeks, but peak on Fridays.

Each week, some Gazans have hurled stones and burning tyres near the frontier fence, where Israeli army sharpshooters are deployed.

He also mentioned the issue of the PLO National Council, which is scheduled on April 30, urging all political factions to take part in "to achieve the political decisions of the last Central Council session which called for severing ties with Israel".

It accuses Hamas, the Islamist militant group which rules Gaza, of staging riots and trying to carry out attacks.

On Thursday night in the village of Burqa, settlers slashed the tires of Palestinian-owned vehicles and painted slogans on cars and walls threatening that Palestinians would be "expelled and killed".

Mansour also stressed that an investigation must be "independent and transparent", as UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and others have called for. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were forced from homes in the 1948 war over Israel's creation. Successive Israeli governments have rejected this right, given that its recognition would lead to an end of the Jewish majority within Israel itself.

Among the four killed were 15 year-old Mohammad Ibrahim Ayoub, bringing the total number of killed over four weeks of protests to 38.
