Israeli forces kill Palestinian, injure dozens in Gaza

Gaza's health ministry said on Thursday that a Palestinian had been killed by Israel's Defense Forces (IDF) gunfire after attempting to cross the border fence.

Palestinian civil servants formed long queues in Gaza on Friday to receive Qatari-funded salaries, as part of efforts to ease tensions in and around the impoverished territory, AFP journalists said.

Qatar's official news agency said the wealthy Gulf state's donation would benefit 27,000 civil servants.

"The Great March of Return" protests were launched by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza - which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege - who took to the borders to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has persuaded Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to agree to a ceasefire understanding between Israel and Hamas.

At least 37 Palestinians, including six children, nine women and a paramedic woman, were injured on Friday as Israeli forces repressed demonstrations across the border of the blockaded Gaza Strip.

Mourinho was asked about his view of the allegations against City, and said he suspected wrongdoing at the club. Der Spiegel also claimed last week City were one of a number of clubs interested in such a proposal.

For the second week in a row, the Palestinians kept Friday's protests carefully restrained, burning fewer tires and refraining from breaching the fence to avoid drawing a lethal response from the Israeli military.

"The Qataris came along and said: "We are willing to pay this instead of Abu Mazen (Abbas), in order to calm Gaza down".

Hamas, an Islamist terror group that seeks to destroy Israel, has controlled Gaza since it ousted the Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority in 2007 from the coastal enclave.

Israel reportedly says this must be done under United Nations auspices. "It is money that is going to the salaries of civil servants, in an orderly, organised manner", Environment Minister Zeev Elkin told Tel Aviv radio station 102 FM.

Wasel Abu Youssef, a member of the executive committee of the Abbas-led Palestine Liberation Organisation, criticised the move.
