Palestinian protesters killed in Gaza Strip

Palestinian protesters killed in Gaza Strip

Despite this, many Gaza residents still take part in protests along the border every Friday. "We're waiting for timelines and clear programs [from Israel] for the implementation of the understandings reached between the resistance groups and the occupation", said Hamas spokesman Abdel Latif al-Qanou.

"We are following with concern the successive and serious developments in the Palestinian cause as a result of Israel's continued settlement construction on the occupied land of Palestine, the existing expansion, demolition of houses, confiscation of lands, and Judaization of the occupied city of Jerusalem, in addition to the persistence of serious violations of global law and disregard of the resolutions of worldwide legitimacy", he said. "We will continue our marches until all our goals are achieved", he said.

Restrictions on fishing off the coast of Hamas-ruled Gaza have also been lifted, the Times of Israel reports.

But in public remarks on Thursday, he said Israel would only undertake a broad military campaign in Gaza after exhausting all other options.

Senior Hamas official Bassem Naim called Saturday's protest "a very important message" that thousands had gathered "peacefully to raise their voice against aggression and the imposed siege on Gaza". This unliveable life is what led Hasan Shalabi to the protests last month.

On Sunday, local media in Gaza published images of Ismail Haniya, the political chief of Hamas, walking alongside el-Khair's relatives during the funeral.

Hamas blames the blockade and punitive measures by its West Bank-based rival, the Palestinian Authority, for worsening the living conditions. We marched on the fence of the Gaza concentration camp marking Land Day and the one-year anniversary of the March.

Saturday's demonstrations were held at five rallying points along the border with Israel.

Hamas said on Sunday that it is waiting to hear from Egyptian mediators what Israel's response is to the proposed ceasefire understandings between the Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip and Israel.

March 30 also marks "Land Day", an annual commemoration of six Arab citizens of Israel who were killed by Israeli security forces during demonstrations over land confiscations in 1976.

"The rioters are hurling rocks and setting tires on fire".

In a statement, Prime Minister Netanyahu praised the army's preparation and performance in maintaining "calm".

A third teenager, also aged 17, succumbed to his wounds and died in the late evening.

Almost 200 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, while an Israeli soldier was killed by a Palestinian sniper last summer. Humanitarian officials urged restraint for Saturday's anniversary to avoid any further bloodshed. They were detained, interrogated, and returned via the Erez crossing into the Gaza Strip.

Dozens of volunteers in fluorescent vests prepared to restrain demonstrators from getting too close to the border fence. In another scene, a youth could be seen trying to pull apart barbed wire along the fence.

In the run-up to Saturday's rallies, the Israeli army has deployed numerous tanks and armored vehicles along the buffer zone with the Gaza Strip.

The Great March of Return began after a call from civil society to engage in a mass march towards the Gaza fence.

At least one Palestinian was killed and 13 protesters were wounded by Israeli live fire, according to Palestinian medical officials.

The army said it was responding with "riot dispersal means and firing in accordance with standard operating procedures".

The marches near were initially organized by grassroots activists who were calling for a mass return to ancestral homes in what is now Israel.
