UNITED NATIONS - Israel used force "not commensurate to the threat" when it fired live ammunition during a Palestinian demonstration in May, but the protesters also behaved in a provocative and violent way, a UN report released on Wednesday said.

The IDF fired on a demonstration at a Lebanese border village on May 15, security sources and the Lebanese army told Reuters at the time. Israel claimed that the Lebanese army was responsible for much of the shooting.

Seven people died according to the UN report, a figure that was revised down from eleven initially reported killed. The incident happened by the Blue Line -- the UN-mapped frontier between Lebanon and Israel.
