One person was killed yesterday as Israeli forces along the border fired at stone-throwing protesters. It has said some of those at the border tried to damage the fence, planted explosives or hurled firebombs.

On Friday, groups of youths waved Palestinian flags and burnt hundreds of tyres and Israeli flags near the fenced-off border after Friday prayers.

Other women managed to carry rubber tires and transport them to demonstrators who burned them to obstruct the vision of Israeli soldiers to avoid more casualties among protestors.

The heavy shooting of bullets and tear gas by Israeli army did not prevent women demonstrators from joining the weekly rallies in border areas.

The company Murtaja co-founded had been vetted for USA government funding, while an global journalists federation said he was harassed and beaten by Hamas police in 2015.

The protests, planned to last six weeks, are calling for Palestinian refugees to return to their former homes that are now inside Israel - which Israelis say essentially amounts to calling for the country's destruction.

The person died after he was transferred to receive treatment shortly after he was shot during a protest that is part of the Great March of Return.

The protests since March 30 posed a challenge to Israel, which dismissed criticism of its use of live fire, saying its rules of engagement are necessary and will not change.


In total, 528 Palestinians were wounded, with 122 protestors by live Israeli army fire.

One protester was injured in the central Gaza Strip, while another was injured during protests east of Jabaliya in northern Gaza.

Smaller groups moved closer to the fence, throwing stones, torching tires and burning large Israeli flags, USA flags, as well as posters of Israel's prime minister and defense minister.

Israel claimed he was a paid member of Hamas, but produced no evidence. At least 26 were killed during protests.

The marches are expected to peak on May 15, the day after the 70th anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence but marked by the Palestinians as the Nakba Day, or "Day of the Catastrophe".

A Palestinian protester tries to pull apart fencing placed on the Israeli-Gaza Strip border by the Israeli military.

Egypt, battling an Islamist insurgency in neighboring Sinai, keeps its border with Gaza largely closed.

It added that the announced investigation was consistent with the approach of the Israeli military prosecution to blur the facts and give a false impression about the effectiveness of the Israeli law enforcement service.
