Israeli police investigating Palestinian woman's death in vehicle

Four Palestinians were killed along the fence east of Al-Bureij in the centre of the Gaza Strip, while one died east of Gaza City, Dr Ashraf al-Qedra, spokesman for the health ministry, said. The Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis in the West Bank, and acts carried out by Israeli settlers often occur in the presence of Israeli military forces who rarely act to protect Palestinian residents.

Israel accuses the Islamist group Hamas, which controls Gaza, of orchestrating the protests along the border fence to provide cover for attacks and to distract from Gaza's economic plight.

More than 150 Palestinians have been killed since the marches began. He said an investigation was underway but did not give further details.

About 600,000 Israelis live in over 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds.

They assailants subsequently approached an Israeli border post and were shot, the statement said.

The majority were killed during border demonstrations, though others have died in airstrikes and tank shelling.

Israeli troops are searching for the assailant, who was seen making his way toward Huwara, a Palestinian village near Nablus, Haaretz reported.

A wave of mainly lone-wolf Palestinian attacks against Israelis in the West Bank erupted in 2015 but had largely abated. In recent weeks, it has stepped up its campaign, holding nighttime protests and adding new locations, such as along the beach.

"The rioters are burning tires and are hurling rocks, explosive devices, firebombs and grenades at IDF troops and the security fence", according to an IDF statement.

Top Palestinian official and member of Fatah, Ahmad Majdalani, said the party remains suspicious of the Qatari role in meddling in the affairs of the Gaza Strip, controlled by Hamas.

Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas' political leader, attended one of the funerals, pledging to keep up the protests until a decade-long Israeli-Egyptian blockade is lifted.

However, thousands again gathered Friday in sites along the border, AFP correspondents said.

Palestinian protesters evacuate a wounded youth was shot by Israeli troops during a protest at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, Friday, Oct. 12, 2018.
