Israel urged not to use force against Palestinian protesters

The United Nations has urged Israel to ensure that its security forces do not use excessive force against Palestinian protesters at the Gaza-Israel border.

The United Nations Human Rights spokeswoman, Elizabeth Throssell told a briefing in Geneva on Friday that unjustified recourse to use of firearms may amount to wilful killing of civilians, which is a breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

Meanwhile, clashes erupted on the Gaza-Israel border today (Friday), a week after similar demonstrations led to violence in which Israeli force killed nineteen Palestinians.
