On Thursday several Israeli government and army officials tweeted the edited video - named "Hamas' use of human shields must stop" - which shows part of an interview Najjar gave with Beirut-based Arabic Al-Mayadeen TV where she allegedly said she was acting as a "human shield".

At least 129 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since then, the majority as they approached the border fence where troops have orders to use lethal force to prevent any infiltration attempts.

On Friday, four Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip by Israeli soldiers near the border fence during new clash-ridden protests in the blockaded enclave.

Dawood Shihab, spokesman for the Islamic Jihad in Gaza, thanked thousands of worldwide protesters for showing their solidarity with the Palestinians, adding that the marches are peaceful and will continue at whatever the price.

Following a request by the Palestinians earlier today (Saturday) to hold an emergency meeting at the UN's General Assembly over what they are calling "an excessive use of force" by Israel, the United Nations is scheduled to vote as early as this Wednesday on a resolution on Gaza that will condemn Israel.
