"Israel will get trapped under the oppression it inflicts in Palestine".

Protests are to continue until May 15, the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding.

Diab al-Louh said his country submitted a memorandum to the Arab League to hold the meeting at the level of permanent representatives because of Israel's crimes and deadly force against peaceful demonstrators during Land Day protests Friday.

Yusef al Mahmoud, spokesperson for the Palestinian Authority (PA) said that Washington and London's opposition to the resolution "turns them into accomplices in the horrific massacre committed by the Israeli occupation army against our defenseless people", the Times of Israel reported. "We are a sovereign state like Great Britain", said Oren.

Liberman told Israel's Army Radio that only people who tried to approach the border fence were shot.

"Under no circumstances will a commission of inquiry be established", Liberman said. The step you took regarding Jerusalem at the United Nations is out in the open.

Israel accuses Hamas, the Islamist group that runs Gaza and with whom it has fought three wars since 2008, of using the protest as cover to carry out violence.

"With regard to the humanitarian aspect, life in Gaza is like hell and this mainly due to the blockade".

Israel rejected allegations of excessive force, saying it defended its border against what it claims is a Hamas attack under the guise of mass protests.

Israeli forces' attacks on the demonstrators left 17 Palestinians martyred and almost 1,500 people injured. Eight were referrals from other hospitals. He was part of a terror cell that conducted a shooting attack against Israeli soldiers, shooting at them from the northern Gaza strip.

At the border on Friday, families sat and picnicked further from the fence as crowds streamed toward it holding Palestinian flags.

"I'm anxious about the fate of all of us, and the fate of the residents of the Gaza periphery communities, who could be sitting in bomb shelters today, tomorrow or next week", she told Army Radio.

The IDF said that all those killed were ringleaders of the rioting, and that despite Hamas provocations - including sending a seven-year-old to the fence, apparently in the hope that Israeli soldiers would shoot and kill her - soldiers did their best to avoid unnecessary bloodshed. "Our people are capable of defending themselves", he said. The militant group Islamic Jihad said the man had been a member.

Adli Abu Taha, who filmed the scene on his mobile phone, told The Associated Press that Abu Shanab had thrown stones close to the fence before joining the group for Friday prayers. He said he'd been demonstrating every day since Friday, wincing as doctors raised his leg to apply extra bandages.

France on Sunday urged Israel to show restraint after clashes along the Gaza border turned violent on Friday, leading to the deaths of 16 Palestinians and injuring of thousands. Israel said 10 belonged to armed factions.
