The Times also follows its now standard practice of nowhere reporting that during the weeks of protest not one single Israeli has even been scratched, while the Israeli military has slaughtered more than 40 Gazans and wounded many hundreds more.

We will remind that on April 27 during the clashes on the border between the Gaza strip and Israel, Israeli troops shot dead three Palestinians. Among the victims - 58 adolescents and 29 women.

Since the rallies began on March 30, at least 47 Palestinian demonstrators - including five children -were killed, according to ministry figures.

Several people also approached the border fence in an attempt to damage it and turned back when troops opened fire in their direction.

By late Friday afternoon, 148 Palestinians had been wounded, including 42 by live bullets and 20 by rubber-coated steel pellets, Gaza health officials said.

A day earlier, 70 Palestinians were wounded by live fire during the sixth consecutive Friday of protests along the Gaza border fence, the health ministry in Gaza said.

Demonstrations are expected to spike again in the lead up to 14 May, when the United States is expected to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"I'm not afraid, there's only one death", she said.

"They have no solution for the kites".

"We do believe the Israelis have a right to defend themselves", he said.

Hamas says the protests are aimed at breaking the border blockade and pressing for the "right of return" of displaced Palestinians and their descendants.

As the world celebrated International Workers' Day on May first, reports emerged that at least 400,000 Palestinians are now facing unemployment, and 150,000 work under precarious conditions in Israel and Jewish-only settlements within the West Bank. The military said the drones were not being used in an operational capacity before they fell, but were filming the protests. The Israeli regime has faced global criticism over its use of live fire.

"This is a cynical act that harms the welfare of Gaza residents and the humanitarian efforts carried out by Israel and many other countries", the army said. The protests are due to continue until mid-May, when the USA plans to move its embassy.
