The statement came in response to a High Court petition filed by human rights groups, declaring that the Zionist entity "opposes the applying of human rights law during an armed conflict".

Israel has been retaliating with full force against this protest, killing several, including a Palestinian journalist.

"If it wasn't for the occupation we would have lived as free as people like in other countries", said Ahmed, 24, at a protest site east of Gaza City.

The Israeli army fears a mass push of thousands of protesters to break through the Gaza border fence and cross into Israel.

According to the Ministry of Health in Gaza, the Israeli troops had wounded 6,793 protesters by Thursday, including 24 who have each had one of their limbs amputated as a direct result of their injuries.

About the victims of clashes between Palestinians and IDF forces were reported.

On Friday, troops faced "approximately 7,000 Palestinians participating in riots in five locations along the Gaza Strip border", a military spokesman said, adding that one group had tried to breach the fence and enter Israeli territory.

The army also said there was an attempt to "sabotage the security fence and to infiltrate into Israel".

Veteran US politician and former presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders delivered a blistering critique of the Israeli leadership and its response to the recent Gaza protests, lambasting "the reactionary policies of Prime Minister [Binyamin] Netanyahu" and "the inhumane blockade of Gaza".

The use of live ammunition by Israel's army has been condemned by the global community and human rights activists.

Hundreds of Palestinians vandalised the Gaza side of the Kerem Shalom goods crossing and torched the pipes that carry fuel and gas from Israel, the army said. His face partially covered with a black-and-white "keffiyeh" scarf, he's part of a group of young protesters calling themselves "the tires' unit", responsible for collecting and burning old tires along the border.

An Israeli military spokeswoman had no immediate comment.

Trump's moves angered Palestinian leaders, who have refused to talk to his administration, accusing it of pro-Israel bias.
