Israel strikes Hamas targets after rockets fired from Gaza

The Iron Dome aerial defense system intercepted one of the projectiles, while the other was believed to have fallen short of its target and hit within Gaza, according to the army.

That's according to a military statement. The draft has been lambasted by Israel's permanent representative to the UN, Danny Danon, who called it "shameful" and argued the resolution was created to help Hamas.

Israeli soldiers on Saturday briefly detained a local activist who filmed the fatal shooting of a Palestinian worker earlier in the morning in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron. Israel responded with 60 airstrikes.

In a statement published by the Palestinian official news Agency Wafa on Friday, Health Minister Jawad Awwad condemned al-Najar's killing and said it violated worldwide law.

Earlier this week, in response to a barrage of rockets fired into civilian areas of Israel, the United States called for an emergency meeting of the Security Council, where many Council ambassadors criticized Hamas and Islamic Jihad for the action.

On social media, users are fervently sharing a photo of an Israeli soldier, who's reported to have shot in Razan's chest.

Kuwait presented its draft two weeks ago, initially calling for an worldwide protection mission for the Palestinians, following riots on the Israeli-Gaza border in which Israeli troops killed dozens of protesters.

Ms Najar died as she ran towards the fence to reach a casualty on Friday.

Canadian government to buy troubled Trans Mountain pipeline
With plans to renew construction activity this summer, the protest movement around this pipeline promises to be heated. Any money put toward construction would be converted into an equity stake in the federal project, she said.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said five protesters were wounded by Israeli fire.

Razan al-Najjar - a 21-year old volunteer with the ministry of health - was shot by Israeli forces on the eastern border of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip. Some 30,000 Palestinians gathered near the border on May 14 in an event organized by, among others, the Hamas terrorist group that controls Gaza. Her work badge dangled from her bier as mourners carried her to the cemetery, just 50 metres from her home.

"It is resolutions like this one that undermine the U.N.'s credibility in dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict", she said shortly before the vote.

"Being a medic is not only a job for a man", Razan al-Najjar, 20, said in an interview at a Gaza protest camp last month.

The army listed a series of attempted attacks at soldiers on the border fence, as well as "damaging security infrastructure and igniting fires in Israeli territory with the use of arson kites and balloons".

The Gaza clashes reached their peak on May 14, the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with the United States embassy relocation from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem al-Quds.

In a post on his official Twitter account on Sunday, Zarif also slammed the US's veto of a UN Security Council resolution that condemned Israel's use of force against Palestinians.
