On Friday afternoon, hundreds of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip arrived at five different spots in the eastern area of the coastal enclave, close to the border with Israel as part of their participation of the 25th Friday of the "Great March of Return".

At least three Palestinians, including a child, were killed Friday by the Israeli army near the Gaza-Israel buffer zone.

Since 2015, Palestinians have killed over 50 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks.

Fuld, who held a fourth-level black belt, also was known for his outspoken manner that included verbal clashes with Palestinians and critics of Israel.

Local media reported that around eight protesters managed to cut the barbed wire of the fence on the border in southern Gaza Strip, and infiltrated into Israel for a short while and then returned into Gaza.

A Palestinian assailant on Sunday fatally stabbed an Israeli settler outside a busy mall in the West Bank.
