According to Gaza's Health Ministry, 29 activists were injured when Israeli naval forces opened fire on the vessels as they approached the maritime border. She told paramedics that she heard a loud noise and went to check its source, Ynet reported. An investigation has been launched to determine how Na'alowa managed to smuggle a shotgun into the industrial zone, where thousands of Israelis and Palestinians are employed.

They were identified by Israeli media as Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, a 28-year-old from the Israeli town of Rosh Haayin near Tel Aviv, and Ziv Hagbi, 35, from Rishon Lezion, also near Tel Aviv.

IDF spokesman Brig Gen Ronen Manelis said the Shin Bet internal security service had concluded that the attack was an act of terrorism, but added that the gunman might have had "additional motives" that were not nationalistic.

"The security forces are in pursuit of the reprehensible murderer", he said. The perpetrator managed to flee after the shooting, prompting a massive search and the deployment of additional troops to the area to prevent copycat attacks. I'm sure we'll catch him and sentence him and soon.

The terror groups called for an end to Jewish settlements and the harm they bring to the al-Aksa Mosque (on the Temple Mount).

Clashes often erupt between Palestinian youth who attempt to block soldiers' passage, throwing stones and empty bottles and are met with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters, often resulting in serious, sometimes fatal, injuries.

Netanyahu expects that the violence will only increase with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas threatening to cut all funding to the terrorist-ruled territory.

"Financing terrorists [pay to slay] is fuel for terrorist attacks like the one that took place in Barkan and only stopping it will help terror", Danon wrote, calling it the Security Council's responsibility to condemn the murders, most importantly for the newly orphaned children.
