Israeli forces detain Palestinian for alleged knife possession

IDF soldiers eliminate pipe bomb-tossing terrorist in Samaria

They had penetrated into Israel from the Gaza border.

Israel started construction of an "above-ground barrier" that will completely surround the Gaza Strip in a bid to keep terrorists from infiltrating the Jewish state's territory, officials said Sunday.

The new upgraded security barrier is to stretch some 65 kilometers (40 miles) from the Kerem Shalom Crossing in the south to the recently-completed 200-meter sea barrier near Zikkim beach along Israel's Mediterranean coast in the north.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday he would not extend its mandate, accusing it of bias.

It is being built along the same line cut by an underground barrier that is being constructed to prevent the infiltration of cross-border terror tunnels.

"We strongly condemn Israel's unilateral termination of the mandate of the Temporary International Presence in Hebron (TIPH), the multilateral observation mission in Hebron, Palestine", the Foreign Ministry said in a statement, calling for a reversal of the decision.

Palestinians in Gaza continuously cut the wire fence that now exists, in order to try to cross into Israel.

However, the Egyptians also stressed that Hamas must maintain calm in the Strip and slow the Great March of Return, including preventing the burning of tyres and cutting the Israeli border fence.

Almost 190 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since they began last March.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society in the West Bank said Friday that at least 15 Palestinian demonstrators were shot and wounded during clashes between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli soldiers in the village of Lemghayer near Ramallah.

The ministry decisively rejected Israel's claims that the group was working against Israel and accused the Israeli government of using the claims as a rationalization for its decision.
