A team of young Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip have found their own way of escaping the hardship of life in a refugee camp: parkour. The urban sport is popular here, with the Gaza Free Running Team aiming to compete internationally one day.
The UN General Assembly has voted to condemn Israeli violence against Palestinian protesters in Gaza. A US attempt to blame Hamas failed to pass.
Thousands of Palestinians have taken part in a funeral procession for a young female paramedic, who was shot dead at the Israeli border. Clashes have continued, with Israeli airstrikes and rockets from Gaza.
The barrier, a few kilometers north of Gaza, is expected to be a fortified breakwater topped with barbed wire. The "one-of-a-kind" blockade is expected to be finished by the end of this year.
The fighting is the worst episode of violence since Israel and Hamas fought a brief war in 2014. The United States, European Union and United Nations have condemned the rocket and mortar attacks against Israel.
