Israeli forces kill 2 Palestinians in eastern Gaza

Two Palestinian youths were martyred by Israeli forces in eastern Al-Barij and eastern Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, during the March of Return protests the first anniversary of which will be held next Friday, 30 Palestinians were injured.

The Zionist forces also targeted rescue teams and damaged an ambulance.

Attacking rescue teams are part of Israeli forces violation of international regulations, IRNA reported.

Earlier on Friday, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in a resolution condemned Israel's intentional use of illegal and violent ways to stand against non-military protestors in Gaza Strip.

According to UNHRC website, “on 18 May 2018, the Human Rights Council adopted a resolution (S-28/1) in which it decided to urgently dispatch an independent, international commission of inquiry to investigate all alleged violations and abuses of international humanitarian law and international human rights law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT).”

The resolution which was initiated by Pakistan on behalf of the OIC is aimed to establish the facts and circumstances, with assistance from relevant experts and special procedure mandate holders, of the alleged violations and abuses, including those that may amount to war crimes.

The great 'March of Return' rallies culminated on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as the Nakba, or Catastrophe, a reference to the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages to clear the way for Israel's establishment in 1948.

The mass Friday demonstrations have continued since then.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have martyred at least 260 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded about 27,000 people, according to health officials in Gaza.
