Palestinian man shot dead by Israeli soldiers in West Bank

Tuesday, the Israeli military said that about 100 rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza toward Israel.

A Palestinian was shot and martyred by Israeli forces in an alleged car-ramming attack in the West Bank on Saturday, according to the Israeli military.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after the strikes that Israel's military had delivered the "harshest blow" in years to Gaza's armed groups. The attacker then turned around and tried to attack nearby Israeli civilians, the military said. Any time Hamas or the smaller Islamic Jihad group resorts to firing rockets, they risk triggering a fierce Israeli response, especially if there are serious casualties on the Israeli side.

Rocket alerts sounded in Israeli towns and villages near the border after dark, sending residents rushing to shelters. Hamas said on Wednesday it had agreed to a ceasefire with Israel. The Israeli army also claimed to have foiled an infiltration attempt on Saturday by a terrorist cell that attempted to get across the border from the southern Gaza Strip.

The border area along the Gaza strip has been under pressure in the past few weeks as Palestinians protested the blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt in 2007 when the Hamas terrorist group seized power.

"We are only a medical team, we don't have any weapons on us", Shaimma said, adding "we have nothing to threaten the Israeli army".

Her father carried her blood-stained medical jacket, while other mourners demanded revenge.

Her death has brought the total death toll to 119 since the protests were launched on March 30.

The Palestinians say most of the dead and the thousands wounded were unarmed civilians against whom Israel was using excessive force.

As well as protesting, Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave have been using kites carrying burning cans to set ablaze Israeli fields, burning patches of agricultural land near Gaza. The proposal also emphasised the need for accountability and independent investigations into the events in Gaza.
