The ministry added that among the injured are 74 children and 23 women, at least one child was among the fatalities.

According to an Amnesty International Tweet earlier, there are 6 children killed.

The majority of injuries have been caused by live bullets while some 320 people were targeted with teargas, according to the ministry. The Palestinian Health Ministry claims that Israeli forces are directly targeting emergency services and journalists.

Six journalists have reportedly been injured while covering Monday’s demonstrations, according to the Journalist Support Committee.

“>SYRIZA urges the international community to “unequivocally condemn the attacks by the Israeli army, calls on the United Nations,  the European Union and the Arab League  “to undertake a direct international peace initiative.”

“>”We are all supporting the resolution of the Palestinian issue by creating an independent and viable Palestinian state at the 1967 border, with East Jerusalem capital and peaceful coexistence of the two states,” SYRIZA underlined. “Peace and resuming of negotiations is the only way for the harmonious coexistence in the Middle East.

  1. For heavens sake what is Israel supposed to do? Open the gates and let Hamas in?
    The ‘Palestines’ are rounded up by Hamas and sent to burn tyres to create a smokescreen behind which they launch attacks and try to break down the barriers.
    The first job of the IDF is to protect Israelis.
