Funeral held in Gaza for baby killed by tear gas

Gaza's Al-Shifa Hospital 'On Brink Of Collapse' As Injuries Mount

Israeli troops used tear gas and live fire against protesters, as they approached the border fence, wounding nearly 3,000 and sparking condemnation from the United Nations (UN).

Asked about life in Gaza, Mr Regev acknowledged the Palestinians "live a very hard life", but blamed Hamas, claiming it does nothing for the people but "invests its efforts in a holy war - their words, not mine - against Israel".

Last month, Amnesty International said many injured Gazans had suffered extreme bone and tissue damage from Israeli gunshots, and with a high number of wounds to the knees, that Israeli forces were deliberately shooting to inflcit life-changing injuries.

Mrs al-Ghandour said: 'The Israelis killed her'.

The picture of slingshot demonstrator Saber al-Ashkar, 29, emerged on social media yesterday.

At least 60 Palestinians were killed throughout the course of the day.

CAMERA's Israel office yesterday prompted improved Associated Press coverage of the Palestinian destruction of the pipeline at Kerem Shalom crossing that provides gas and fuel to Gaza's residents.

Traditionally, May 15th is the day Palestinians mark the "Nakba" or "Catastrophe".

On Tuesday morning, the Palestinian Health Ministry stated that a child died from serious wounds he suffered, Monday, after Israeli soldiers shot him east of Gaza City.

Later, an unnamed medical doctor said Tuesday that the baby had a pre-existing medical condition and that he did not believe her death was caused by tear gas.

Miss al-Ghandour said she had left Leila with her brothers at home while she went to the dentist.

Close to the border he eventually found his mother Heyam and handed Leila over to her.

'I could barely breathe, ' Heyam said.

"She drank juice but was crying a lot". They often can not afford the medicines or medical bills for follow up care and extremely anxious about their children's futures - which they say were already being steadily eroded by more than 10 years of Israeli blockade, falling donor interest.

UN General Secretary António Guterres said he was "profoundly alarmed and concerned by the sharp escalation of violence".

But during a UN Security Council meeting, USA ambassador Nikki Haley said: "No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has". French president Emmanuel Macron also condemned the killings.

On Tuesday, journalists and family members waited for their dead in Gaza's al-Shifa Hospital, as surgeons rushed to treat injured protesters in overflowing operating rooms, while other patients lined the corridors.
