Palestinian killed, hundreds injured by Israeli fire on Gaza border

Palestinian killed, hundreds injured by Israeli fire on Gaza border

Under worldwide law, said the report, while addressing its military and security needs in areas along the perimeter fence, Israel is obliged to avoid causing disproportionate harm to the lives and livelihoods of the Palestinian population.

It said some 8,000 Gazans had participated in the protests at five locations along the border.

It said in a statement that one of those killed was a 14-year-old boy shot in the head during border confrontations east of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. The dead was a 25-year-old man.

Muadh al-Suri, 15, was shot in the stomach on Friday in central Gaza, ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said, raising the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli fire during those clashes to two, with over 200 wounded.

Palestinians have also flown balloons and kites attached to incendiary devices across the border, starting hundreds of fires inside Israel in recent months.

Men wave national flags while riding a motorcycle-taxi, called a Toktok, loaded with tires to be burned during a protest at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, Friday, Aug. 3, 2018.

Arouri has been in exile since 2010. The blockade started after Hamas took control of the strip in 2007.

Salva Kiir says the new deal will survive because it won't be forced upon them like previous accords. The South Sudanese President also said that he was "going to sign", the agreement.

In another development, a boat carrying activists challenging Israel's naval blockade of Gaza is approaching the territory, said the Freedom Flotilla Coalition, an umbrella group for pro-Palestinian and Islamic charities from around the world.

The deal would purportedly include the improvement of living conditions inside Gaza, in addition to a sea port and an airport in Egypt.

On Saturday, the Israeli army said an aircraft had fired at "a terrorist squad" launching "arson balloons" at Israel.

It could also cover a prisoner exchange with Hamas which holds the bodies of two soldiers killed in a 2014 war, Israeli media say.

According to Hebrew news site Walla, both sides are considering a five-year truce proposed by Egypt and the United Nations through Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov.

"The devil is always in the details but we are #movingforward in the interest of #peace", Mladenov said.
