Woman dies after settlers pelt car with stones

On Friday, Israeli forces said they had arrested a Palestinian on suspicion of stabbing and wounding an army reservist on guard duty at a checkpoint south of Nablus the previous day.

The ministry did not immediately identify the victims, but said they had been killed as thousands of protesters approached the heavily-guarded Israeli border.

According to Qidra, another 50 Palestinians were injured by live ammunition fired by Israeli troops deployed along the other side of the buffer zone.

Qudra said four Palestinians - Ahmad al-Taweel, 27; Mohamed Ismail, 29; Ahmad Abu Ne'eim, 17; and Abdullah al-Daghma, 25 - were killed east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip. The Bedouin village is said to be slated for demolition and Palestinian villagers have been protesting against the imminent move.

Israeli military spokesman Lt Col Jonathan Conricus tweeted that one group had "detonated a bomb on the Israel-Gaza border fence", allowing around 20 people to climb through the hole.

"In addition, Hamas continues to welcome any terrorist attack and encourages the Palestinians, residents of the West Bank, to carry out attacks against Israeli citizens".

The fuel deliveries were aimed at easing months of protests along the separation fence east of Gaza, which has been under a crippling Israeli and Egyptian blockade for more than a decade.

Addressing the unrest, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman made a decision to cut Qatari fuel shipments into the Gaza Strip in response to the mass protests.

In addition, 10 fires broke out in southern Israel which were started by incendiary balloons launched over the border from Gaza, according to The Times of Israel.
