In Israel's permits, Palestinians see device to manage lives

Screen capture from video purporting to show a Palestinian rioter injuring a bystander with a sling he was aiming at Israeli security forces on the border with the Gaza Strip

Three Palestinians were killed and dozens were wounded in the incident, the most serious attempt so far by a large group to break down the barrier.

Talking in Jordanian capital Amman on Monday, he urged the Palestinians to return to peace talks with Israel. No Israeli soldiers or civilians have been injured in the nonviolent protests.

Earlier in the evening, two Palestinians armed with tools meant to damage the border fence and knives were arrested after the infiltrated into Israel on the border with southern Gaza.

The rallies are part of a six-week demonstration that will culminate on May 15, which will mark the 70th anniversary of Israel's establishment - an event Palestinians refer to as "The Catastrophe".

Israel has refused any right of return for Palestinians who were expelled or fled and became refugees after the country declared independence in 1948, fearing it would lose its Jewish majority.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has visited the Middle East on his first trip overseas since assuming the position.

On Sunday night, Israeli troops fatally shot two Palestinians who infiltrated from Gaza and attacked soldiers with explosives, the military said.

The departure from the political arena of associates of the founder of the Palestinian national authority Yasser Arafat is intensifying the struggle for the inheritance of his successor, Mahmoud Abbas. The American top diplomat, however, did not meet Palestinian leaders or representatives, who have cut off political contact with the Trump administration over the relocation of the US Embassy in the occupied territories.

Back in December past year, Trump announced that Washington was recognizing Jerusalem al-Quds, both its eastern and western part, as Israel's "capital".

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the decades-long Middle East conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - occupied by Israel since 1967 - might eventually serve as capital of an independent Palestinian state.

Palestinians have rejected US peace-making efforts since Trump chose to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move its embassy to the city, wanted by Palestinians as capital of their own state.

Worldwide law continues to view the West Bank and East Jerusalem as "occupied territories" and considers all Jewish settlement construction there as illegal.

In a move never recognized by the worldwide community, Israel annexed the entire city in 1980, claiming it as its "eternal and undivided" capital.

PLO Executive Committee Member Hanan Ashrawi Monday condemned Israel's decision to permanently revoke the Jerusalem residency rights of three members of the Palestinian Legislative Council and a former minister of Jerusalem affairs.
