Israeli troops fire bullets, tear gas at Gaza protesters

Correspondents say explosions in Gaza in the past have been caused by Israeli air strikes, by feuding between Palestinian factions or by the mishandling of explosives by militant groups.

A 19-year-old Palestinian shot by Israeli soldiers during protests and clashes along the Gaza border last week died from his wounds Thursday, the health ministry in the Palestinian enclave said.

The past few weeks have seen tensions rise between Hamas-ruled Gaza and Israel.

Sources of the Public Health Ministry of the Strip of Gaza reported that another 361 Palestinian civilians were affected by inhalling tear gas, among them three journalists.

The statement also went on to accuse some Friday's protesters who were wounded as having faked their injuries, meant to "disguise Hamas' severe terror activities, including the hurling of explosive devices, grenades, attempted infiltrations into Israeli territory and the burning of Israeli lands". The riots injured at least 1.143.

"I'm not afraid, there's only one death", she said.

It quoted the Israeli Maariv newspaper saying that the American so-called deal of the century, which has not been made public yet, calls on Israel to turn over sovereignty of four East Jerusalem neighborhoods to the Palestinian Authority.

Human rights groups have consistently rejected this argument.

The weekly marches also press for a "right of return" of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to what is now Israel. However, in response to the challenge to its open-fire policy, Israeli officials have insisted that their response comply fully with their army's rules of engagement and global law arguing human rights law is not applicable in a "state of war".

A draft UN Security Council statement urging restraint and calling for an investigation of the violence was blocked by the US.

Israel has warned that it would use excessive force against any attempt of infiltration from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
