On Friday, Palestinian journalist Yasser Murtaja was fatally shot in Gaza where he was covering the confrontation between Palestinian protesters and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). "That son of a bitch".

ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda noted that 27 Palestinians have reportedly been killed by the IDF in the last fortnight and more than 1,000 have been injured - "many, as a result of shootings using live ammunition and rubber bullets".

It was not possible to determine whether the person shot in the video died.

In the video that surfaced over the weekend, which appears to be filmed though a set of binoculars, the soldiers can be heard discussing the shot as the sniper takes aim. There is no border between Gaza and Israel; there is an armistice line.

"As for the unauthorised filming of an operational event, the distribution of the filmed material and the statements made there, it should be noted that these do not suit the degree of restraint expected of IDF (Israel Defence Force) soldiers and will be dealt with by commanders accordingly", the statement said.

The army said the video seemed to show an incident that happened "a number of months ago" and pledged that it "will be thoroughly investigated".

"His [Hajila's] pure blood will only fuel the resistance and our drive towards liberation", the group said in a statement.

"I can't fire because of the barbed wire", the sniper replied.

Lieberman used a Hebrew word that can also be translated as "innocent", as AFP and other news media initially quoted him as saying.

Gazans are preparing for a third consecutive Friday of protests along the border with Israel, after mass demonstrations since March 30 that have sparked violence in which Israeli forces have killed 32 Palestinians. There have been no Israeli casualties.

Israel has drawn sharp criticism for its open-fire orders along the border, including its warnings that those approaching or trying to damage the fence would be targeted.

It accuses Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Gaza Strip and with whom it has fought three wars since 2008, of seeking to use the protests to carry out violence. The European Union, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and others have called for an independent investigation into the deaths, which included a journalist.

"After none of these were successful, a single bullet was sacked towards one of the Palestinians who is suspected of organizing and leading this incident, while he was a few meters from the fence".
