Israeli tank shelling killed three Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, medical officials said, after weeks of border protests that have drawn lethal army fire.

Israel’s military confirmed that it targeted an observation post, calling the attack retaliation for a bomb that had been placed next to the border fence overnight. The bomb was detonated by army engineers, causing no casualties, the military said on Twitter.

Hostilities over the Gaza frontier have soared since Palestinians began mass-demonstrations on March 30, which Israel deems cover for attempts to breach the border fence.

At least 115 Palestinians have been killed and thousands hurt by army gunfire in the protests, drawing foreign censure.

There have been no Israeli casualties along the Gaza frontier, but Israel has reported extensive damage to farmland on its side of the border from firebomb-bearing kites flown over by Palestinians.

Gaza is under the control of Hamas, an Islamist movement hostile to Israel. Islamic Jihad operates with a measure of independence from Hamas.

In Israel, the military announced the death on Saturday of a soldier who was injured during a raid in the occupied West Bank on Thursday when Palestinians dropped a stone slab on his head from a building. Hundreds attended his funeral in Jerusalem on Sunday.

    After eight weeks of protests in Gaza, Palestinians have not won any concessions from Israel to improve living conditions.
    That is leading to internal pressure on Hamas as the 11-year-long blockade on Gaza continues to exacerbate the suffering of many Palestinians.

      I don’t know if this ‘Bibi’ doing any good work.
      Keep yourself ready for the flood of Jews that will now stream into Israel as a result of the Pew Research Center’s report titled “Being Christian in Western Europe” was published Wednesday and contains results from interviews with more than 24,000 randomly selected adults in 15 countries.

      What the study found;
      – 19 percent of Germans polled responded negatively to the question: “Would you be willing to accept a Jew as a family member?”
      – Among the 15 European countries included in the study, the percentage of respondents who said they would not accept a Jewish family member was highest in Italy (25 percent), Britain (23 percent) and Austria (21 percent). The Netherlands and Norway had the lowest (3 percent).
      – 33 percent of Germans responded negatively to accepting a Muslim as a family member.
      – The percentage of respondents who said they would not accept a Muslim into their family was highest in Italy (43 percent), Britain (36 percent) and Austria (34 percent).
      – The willingness to accept Muslim family members differed greatly between German Catholics and Protestants. More than half of Catholics said they would not accept a Muslim, but only 16 percent of Protestants.
      – Overall, the results showed that practicing and non-practicing Christians across Europe were more intolerant of Muslims, Jews and immigrants than Europeans who do not identify as being religious.

      The German angst:
      Millions of refugees and migrants have arrived in Germany from the Middle East and Africa since 2015.
      The arrivals have sparked an anti-immigrant backlash and renewed political debates about the role of Islam in Germany.
      Some politicians have also linked the new arrivals to a rise in anti-Semitism.
