Israeli soldiers have killed five Palestinians at a protest near the border fence between Gaza and Israel on Friday, Gaza's health ministry has said.

Tear gas canisters are fired by Israeli troops towards Palestinian demonstrators during a protest calling for lifting the Israeli blockade on Gaza and demanding the right to return to their homeland, at the Israel-Gaza border fence in the southern Gaza Strip October 12, 2018.

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 assailants were killed", it said, without giving a number.

Israeli troops are searching for the assailant, who was seen making his way toward Huwara, a Palestinian village near Nablus, Haaretz reported. Of that, 140 people - including 45 children, eight women and two paramedics - were hurt by live ammunition.

The Israeli military said 14,000 Palestinians thronged the border fence areas, burning tires and throwing rocks, firebombs and grenades at soldiers stationed atop earth mounds on the other side of the barrier.

Senate deal that allows lawmakers leave DC to campaign
President Trump said during his presidential campaign that he would only appoint pro-life judges to the court. John Kennedy agreed that McConnell was dead set on getting a good deal for Republicans.

The Israeli army said five were shot dead after breaking through the border fence and attacking an army post.

"Israel will not tolerate a situation in which fuel tankers are allowed to enter Gaza on the one hand, while terror and violence are used against IDF soldiers and Israeli citizens on the other", Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman's office said on Friday.

Israel accuses Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist movement that controls Gaza, of orchestrating the protests to provide cover for attacks.

Critics of the tactic describe it as collective punishment to Palestinians.

This week, the United Nations began supervising deliveries of Qatari-donated diesel fuel meant to restart Gaza's only power plant to increase electricity supplies and mitigate the crisis.

At least 204 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza since March 30, when Palestinians in the Gaza Strip began holding nearly daily protests near the buffer zone.
