Islamist Human Rights Commission Condemns Israel Aggression Against Palestinians

The syndicate identified one of them as working for Hamas television.

Palestinians say protesters are being shot while posing no threat to soldiers.

The killing of Palestinian journalist Yaser Murtaja by an Israeli sniper, with what the head of Reporters Without Borders called "an intentional shot", understandably got global headlines.

His death brings the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since then to 31.

The video, which emerges after 31 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza by sniper bullets shot from within Israel, have gained worldwide condemnation.

Despite widespread outcry and worldwide calls for investigations into the killings, the Israeli army has maintained its open fire policy, and has commended its soldiers for their actions on the border.

Caught on video by a human rights group and spread widely online, it showed the 21-year-old Palestinian lying wounded on the ground, shot along with another Palestinian after allegedly stabbing and wounding a soldier, according to the army.

The Islamic militant group Hamas that rules Gaza is now leading a campaign of mass protests at the border and 26 Palestinians have been killed since it began two weeks ago.

Adreian Payne and Keith Appling, members of that 2015 team, were among the names that surfaced in the ESPN report . The room then went dark and she was allegedly thrown face down on the bed and held in place, unable to move.

Israel has accused Hamas of using the recent protests as a cover for carrying out attacks and trying to infiltrate Israel.

"This video may be from months ago, Israel is claiming, which does not in any way make it less horrifying", Ali Abunimah, co-founder of Electric Intifada, wrote on Twitter Monday.

The army has not said if he was deliberately targeted or hit by accident.

The 81-second clip surfaced on social media on April 9 and led Israeli TV news, with one host calling it "disturbing".

Israel's military said the incident in the video "apparently" dated back several months, adding that it "will be thoroughly investigated".

But opinion roughly divided along predictable lines, with some who oppose Israel's policies toward the Palestinians expressing shock and others who are more supportive defending the shooting and dismissing the soldiers' cheers as an nearly natural release of tension.

Hamas, meanwhile, has evoked Martin Luther King Jr.in its public statements as it gives full backing to the demonstrations in the blockaded enclave, which have drawn tens of thousands of Palestinians.

"As for the unauthorised filming of an operational event, the distribution of the filmed material and the statements made there, it should be noted that these do not suit the degree of restraint expected of Israel Defence Force (IDF) soldiers and will be dealt with by commanders accordingly", the statement said. Last week, officials estimated there were some 30,000 Gazans participating.
