Another Palestinian teenager shot dead by Israeli soldiers

15 Palestinians injued after Israeli police fire stun grenades, tear gas at worshippers at Al-Aqsa

The Israeli military did not comment directly on the deaths but said about 7,000 Palestinian "rioters" threw rocks and rolled burning tyres at soldiers, and at the fence itself, at several locations along the border.

In that incident, Israeli commandos killed nine Turkish activists when they raided a six-ship flotilla trying to reach the Gaza Strip in defiance of the blockade.

Israel and Egypt imposed a blockade on Gaza after the Islamic militant group Hamas took over the territory in 2007.

Abu Salima added that 36 solidarity activists, including Israelis and Palestinians, from 15 various countries are onboard of the attacked ship.

Gaza's National Committee for Breaking the Siege called upon the residents of Gaza to participate in the official welcoming reception of the Freedom Flotilla ship, which was to take place at noon at the fishermen's port in Gaza City.

The group argued that the supplies the activists had with them were a "small but important contribution to the increasingly dire medical situation" in Gaza.

Four boats that constitute the squadron, left from Scandinavia in mid-May and stopped in some 28 ports along the way, the coalition said. The ship, which was carrying aid to Gaza, was attacked while being unarmed, killing 10 pro-Palestinian activists and injuring dozens of other peaceful activists.




"In fact, the only "necessary measures" would be to end the blockade of Gaza and restore freedom of movement for all Palestinians".

Two years ago, 13 women including Mairead Maguire a peace activist from Northern Ireland who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1976, were detained 35 nautical miles from the Gaza coast upon the "Women's Boat to Gaza" and subsequently deported.

It said afterwards on Twitter that the boat had been "hijacked by Israeli forces".

"The Israeli Navy clarified to the ship's passengers that they are violating the legal naval blockade and that any humanitarian merchandise can be transferred to Gaza via Ashdod", the army statement read.

A 2010 attempt to breach the blockade ended in disaster.

According to al-Dibs, the Israeli authorities have sealed the compound's Al-Qibali Mosque with iron chains and prevented Palestinian worshippers from entering the building.
