The protesters, however, remained defiant and used their limited resources like slingshots to target Israeli devices like drones, Reuters reported, adding that several Palestinians also entered Kerem Shalom, an industrial crossing point located on the border, and claimed to have burned rooms used by Israel. In another location, soldiers warned over loudspeakers that those burning tires would be targeted. The blockade also affects Gazan fisherman who risks being shot if they attempt to fish beyond the six nautical miles Israel allows them to use.

Since the rallies began on March 30, at least 47 Palestinian demonstrators - including five children -were killed, according to ministry figures.

By mid-afternoon, as many as 170 protesters had been injured near the border, at least 22 by Israeli cross-border gunfire, according to Gaza's Health Ministry.

According to the health Ministry of the Gaza strip, on Friday, may 4, in the riots during the sixth of the "March of return", have been wounded not less than 1.143.

Israel has defended its disproportionate use of violence against peaceful protesters involved in the the Great Return March demonstrations after facing a legal challenge from worldwide rights groups, suggesting human rights laws do not apply to what it described as "acts of war".

It accused Hamas, a militant group sworn to Israel's destruction, of trying to carry out attacks under the guise of the mass protests.

Two-thirds of the two million Palestinians in Gaza are war refugees or their descendants. An added focus this year is President Donald Trump's decision to begin moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem on May 14, the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding.
