Palestinian medic killed by Israeli fire on Gaza border: health ministry

The incident came as Gaza's Hamas rulers and Israel honored a cease-fire Friday that ended two days of an intense flare-up in violence.

Rockets fired by Hamas have not killed any Israelis. Israel's government hasn't confirmed the truce.

At least 40 Palestinians were shot by Israeli fire in the protests, the health ministry in the Hamas-governed Gaza Strip said, with volunteer medic Abdullah al Qatati killed after being hit in the chest east of Rafah in southern Gaza.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment.

Hamas's Al Aqsa TV reported late Thursday that an Egypt-brokered deal had taken hold "on the basis of mutual calm".

It would be the third such truce in a month.

But the deal did not seem to address the deeper issues that have prevented the bitter enemies from reaching a longer cease-fire arrangement.

Palestinians have been protesting along the Gaza-Israel border on Fridays since late March. "Netanyahu was opposed. The (Israeli army) also didn't recommend it", he said. "Following a security assessment", residents can resume their daily routine, the military said. We condemn in the strongest terms the launching of massive missile attacks into Israel from Gaza and call for an end to violence.

An Israeli airstrike killed three people on Wednesday, including a pregnant woman and her 18-month-old daughter.

Now the protests occur mostly on Fridays, though pro-Palestinian activists have sought to find new ways to draw attention to Israeli oppression and abuses, such as flotillas of activists attempting to break the naval blockade. Power is on for just a few hours a day, unemployment has sky-rocketed and poverty is widening.

He said another 242 Palestinians were injured during the protest.

Another paramedic, Mohammed Suhwail, told The Associated Press he witnessed the shooting.

Israel has also been battling nearly daily airborne arson attacks from Gaza caused by kites and balloons rigged with incendiary devices flown across the border that have sparked large fires that destroyed forests, burned crops and killed wildlife and livestock.

The Israeli army said a grenade had been thrown at troops in northern Gaza which did not injury any soldiers.

The protests along the border dubbed have been the greatest threats to Israeli security in the region since operation Protective Edge due to the combination of terror tunnels, riots, attempted infiltrations and the use of incendiary items.

Later on Friday the IDF targeted another Hamas position with tank fire in the southern Gaza Strip.
