Its soldiers used tear gas, rubber bullets and live fire.

Azzam Oweida, 15, was hit in the head during protests in southern Gaza on Friday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.

The demonstrations, entering their fifth-week, have left a total of 45 Palestinians dead, with a reported 5,500 injured. There have been no Israeli casualties.

"While Nikki Haley and other officials of the Trump Administration continue forging reality by adopting Israeli talking points and false claims aimed at justifying the systematic denial of our rights and attacks against our people, the fact that matters is that during nearly a month of demonstrations in Gaza, the Israeli Army has killed over 43 Palestinian civilians, including children, as well as injuring over 6,000 people either by the use of tear gas or shooting live ammunition", he added.

Al Jazeera's reported that "Thousands of people stood right at the border, then we heard the Israeli forces opening live fire".

"Israel has made it very clear that they want people to stay away from. what they call a buffer zone".

Eighteen medical personnel and journalists were among the wounded.

A number of victims experienced convulsions, severe vomiting and suffocation as a result of their exposure, he said.

"We say to Nikki Haley, to Netanyahu, to the criminal Lieberman" - referring to the United States ambassador to the United Nations, the Israeli prime minister and Israel's defense minister, Avigdor Lieberman - "we are afraid neither of death nor of martyrdom", Mr. Radwan said. Youth unemployment is at 60 percent and residents typically only receive four hours of electricity a day. Some attached cans of burning petrol to kites and flew them over the fence and into Israeli territory, according to the report.

Video footage showed a young Palestinian man placing a burning tire along the fence in an apparent attempt to set it on fire.

"This is their way of resisting what they call the occupation, resisting the blockade that gives them no freedom of movement".

The marches, aimed in part at trying to break a decade-old border blockade, have been organized by Gaza's militant Hamas rulers but have also been driven by widespread despair in the coastal territory of 2 million people. Zionists, or those who supported creation of an independent state for Jews, pressured the British government for the creation of the State of Israel, which happened in May 1948.

The human rights group Amnesty International called for a global arms embargo against Israel, accusing it of "carrying out a murderous assault" against Palestinian protesters.

B'Tselem's El-Ad stressed that "extensive past experience clearly demonstrates that the recently announced Israeli "investigation" of some of these fatalities is nothing more than a whitewash mechanism", and "part of a façade created to give the impression that Israel is abiding by its legal obligation to investigate". "Some of these cases appear to amount to wilful killing, a grave breach of the Geneva Conventions and a war crime".

Israel's United Nations envoy, Danny Danon, told the security council on Thursday that Hamas in Gaza was responsible for Palestinian casualties and that it was using innocent Palestinian women and children as human shields, while they cowered behind in safety.

Israel said the demonstrations - held to demand Palestinian refugees be allowed to return to their former homes in Israel - had turned violent.
