GEOFFREY ARONSON - More than 1,400 have been wounded in clashes between Palestinian protesters and the Israeli military. The media has barely noticed.

Just think if Russia done something like this using snipers to shoot defenseless, peaceful protesters? Israel gets away with it because the media is biased in their favour, so now they are being brazen.  KV

In recent days 17 Palestinians have been shot and killed by Israeli forces positioned along the 32-mile fortified border separating Israel from the impoverished enclave. An extraordinary 1,416 have been wounded in clashes between Palestinian protesters and the military, including 750 injured by live fire.
The UN Security Council was poised to approve a statement expressing “grave concern at the situation at the border,” reaffirming “the right to peaceful protest” and expressing the Council’s “sorrow at the loss of innocent Palestinian lives.” The draft called “for respect for international human rights law and international humanitarian law, including protection of civilians.” Council members “called upon all sides to exercise restraint and prevent a further escalation,” and endorsed an “independent and transparent investigation” of the confrontations. The U.S. then blocked the approval of the statement.
“As for a commission of inquiry—there won’t be one,” Minister of Security Avigdor Lieberman flatly stated to Israel Army Radio.” Israeli soldiers did what was necessary. I think all our soldiers deserve a medal.”
