Three Palestinians killed in fresh Gaza-Israel border protests

Three dead and hundreds injured as Israeli troops open fire on Gaza border

With the Great March of Return protests entering their fifth consecutive week, tensions near the Gaza border continue to escalate as at least three more Palestinian protesters have reportedly been killed in clashes with Israeli troops.

US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, blamed the Islamic fundamentalist group Hamas for attacking Israel while using Palestinian people as human shields.

"The Israeli military has killed 35 Palestinians and injured more than 5,500 others - some with what appear to be deliberately inflicted life-changing injuries - during the weekly Friday protests that began on 30 March", the UK-based rights group added.

Dozens of young men burned tyres and threw stones a few hundred metres from the border, with Israeli soldiers occasionally firing tear gas and live ammunition.

The Palestinians say Israel is using excessive force against the protesters, 2,000 of whom have been wounded by gunfire.

Gazan medical officials said two people remain in critical condition with 200 more wounded.

Institutional Investors Hate on Marathon Oil Corp Falls
Marathon Oil Corporation ( NYSE : MRO)'s earnings report is anticipated On May, 2 after the close., as reported by Faxor. Perhaps, that suggests something about why 0.57% of the outstanding share supply is held by institutional investors.

It said several Palestinians were attempting to cross by force and troops "had operated in accordance with the rules of engagement", adding that protesters had hurled stones and rolled burning tires during the incident.

More than 300 other people were hospitalised for gunshot wounds and tear gas inhalation, Gaza's health ministry said.

The military also says Hamas is using the protests as cover to damage the border fence and prepare to infiltrate and carry out attacks.

"The nature of these injuries shows that Israeli soldiers are using high-velocity military weapons created to cause maximum harm to Palestinian protesters that do not pose imminent threat to them", an Amnesty report noted.

The protest movement is officially independent but has the backing of Hamas, which has fought three wars with Israel since 2008.

Hamas' supreme leader, Ismail Haniyeh, visited a protest camp in the southern town of Rafah, vowing larger protests in Gaza, the West Bank, Israel and among Palestinian refugees in other countries on May 15.

Deutsche Bank to scale back investment bank as profits slump
The figure was short of analyst expectations for 374 million euros and down sharply from 575 million euros a year earlier. First Republic Investment Management Inc. bought a new stake in Deutsche Bank in the 3rd quarter valued at $180,000.

"The loss of life is deplorable, and the staggering number of injuries caused by live ammunition only confirms the sense that excessive force has been used against demonstrators - not once, not twice, but repeatedly", the commissioner said. "This is evil in its purest form", Dannon said.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman blamed Hamas for the teenager's death, while Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon called on the worldwide body to condemn Hamas's use of children as a cover for their terror activities.

For the last four weeks, Gazans have staged rallies along the border to demand the "right of return" to their homes in historical Palestine from which they were driven in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel.

More than 2 million Palestinians are packed into the narrow coastal enclave. Israel withdrew its troops and settlers from the enclave in 2005 but, citing security concerns, maintains tight control over its land and sea borders.

"Gaza is about to explode", a senior United Nations official warned on Thursday amid a spike in clashes on the border with Israel over the past week.
