8:03 am
a ceasefire actually been reached is it going to remain calm or will tension once again flare up friday had started like so many and the past few months with large crowds gathering at the gaza fence and charles trafford was there. these men say it's their duty as palestinians to protest against israel's occupation. they put together their kite clipping its tail which they say will keep it balance as it carries the burning pall over gaza's border fence they soak the sackcloth in petrol and oil because they say it helps it slowly became han are their land we are here to prove to the whole world that we will never leave the island we're going to do with burning kites was that occupied land and i'm not afraid of the israelis i'm only afraid of god from us leader ismail haniya sits close by but he has come to support the protesters. i must say the kites and balloons to carry the burning rags
8:04 am
into israel are a peaceful form of protest israeli snipers have been targeting balloons that the protesters have been launching well behind the main demonstration these protesters say they will continue launching their kites holding those incendiary devices until israel lifts the siege. the men like the rag and the kite drifts all too and now it's the build a fence israel says five started by protesters have destroyed large areas of crops and private planned. protest to set fire to tires which they uses color from his radio on the snipers positioned along the fence. is ready tanks talk to hamas positions along the border often news that an israeli soldier had been injured these radio me later reported that the soldier had died from his wounds in the protesters climbed the walls of a building being used by the israeli soldiers. the army responded with tear gas

a mold sounded like live ammunition. an israeli drone flew overhead one hundred forty protesters have been killed since the weekly demonstrations started four months ago the israeli army shot this man in the leg during a protest in april i'm not just assaulted on the i'm sending a message to the occupiers that this is our land and you came and took it from us you jews who came from france and england and around the world here it is our land and we inherited it from all grandfathers and before them. the israeli government is under pressure by some politicians to launch a large scale military offensive to stop the protesters. as the day ended israeli fighter jets targeted various hamas bases across gaza including this one in the densely populated neighborhood of z. tune. the ministry of health says at least three civilians were injured in this attack. phyllis bennis program director of the new
8:06 am
internationalism project at the ends to take for policy studies she doubts the calm will hold. it's important that they use the word calm and not the word peace there has been no peace in gaza for many many decades and i think what we're seeing right now is a moment of hesitation it may be that the firing has slowed and israel doesn't yet want to acknowledge that it's a little hard to know as you know that there have been extraordinary rhetoric escalations throughout the day the minister of education f. tully bennett one of the furthest right of this right wing cabinet had called earlier today for the israeli snipers on the gaza fence to fire at directly at the children who are launching some of these kites and it was the chief of the army the chief of the israeli army came back and said i can't accept that it and he's indicated he believed it was not
8:07 am
a moral position and despite that the minister of education called again for essentially killing palestinian children so there is this incredible level of of rhetorical escalation underway and we know that the position of the israelis for some time has been to anticipate a more significant attack that would be even more deadly than the two thousand and fourteen war which left over two thousand one hundred palestinians dead so in that situation i think if there is a ceasefire that holds briefly it will not hold for very long i'm afraid what we're seeing here is that the palestinians for seventeen weeks now have been launching extraordinarily nonviolent protests every friday afternoon at and near the fence those protests from the very first one from even before the first one the israelis announced that those nonviolent protests would be met with brutal force that they were going to send in the sharpshooters the snipers which they did the snipers have
