"We have to wait for the official investigation".

The family of Dr Fadi Albatsh, gunned down in Setapak, has accused Israeli national intelligence agency Mossad of murdering him.

The hitman-style slaying of Palestinian Dr Fadi Albatsh early today sent foreign media organisations into a frenzy as they made it the top story the world over. It doesn't! It fuels anger and breeds more killing.

"#Children must be protected from #violence, not exposed to it, not killed!"

Since March 30, when the demonstrations began, 39 Palestinians have been killed and nearly 4,000 others injured in Israeli attacks.

USA ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, a staunch supporter of Israel's illegal settlement policy in the occupied territories, has asked the State Department in December to stop referring to the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza Strip and the Syrian Golan Heights as "occupied territories", which it did in its most recent report on human rights in Israel and the occupied territories. Ayoub was among thousands who gathered to throw stones - some using slingshots and catapults -and hurl burning tires at the fence in an effort to damage it.

Israel accuses Hamas, which is sworn to Israel's destruction and has carried out dozens of deadly suicide bombings against it, of cynically exploiting Gaza civilians for its political aims by staging the protests and trying to carry out attacks under their cover.

It added: "Stay away from the fence and do not attempt to harm it; avoid using weapons and committing violent acts against Israeli security forces and Israeli citizens".

Swansea , meanwhile, will be looking to try and spoil the party, and move themselves away from the dreaded relegation zone. This late season thriller saw Manchester City officially confirm a place in the Champions League for the 2015/16 season.

It said in the statement that "troops are responding with riot dispersal means and are firing in accordance with the rules of engagement".

Friday marked the fourth round of weekly mass border protests, led by Gaza's ruling Hamas group. The protests are meant to last six weeks, but peak on Fridays. "Every day, we will come here with a new way to resist them", he said, referring to Israel.

Israel and Hamas are bitter foes who have fought three wars since 2008.

The rising Palestinian casualty toll signaled that Israel's military is sticking to its open-fire rules despite worldwide criticism of the use of lethal force against unarmed protesters.

Palestinians say protesters are being shot while posing no threat to heavily armed occupation forces.

More than two million Palestinians are packed into the narrow coastal enclave. Ever since that 1947 proposal took effect the following year, Palestinians have protested to gain citizenship of Israel, all to no avail.

Protests demanding Palestinian refugees" right to return will continue until May 15, the Nakba or "Catastrophe, ' when Palestinians will commemorate 70 years since over 700,000 people were expelled from their homes following the foundation of the state of Israel in 1948.
