"This really shows the cynicism of the Hamas terror organization toward the citizens they are supposed to care for", Conricus told reporters. Israel says it has acted to defend its border and has accused the protests of being directed by Hamas. A separate people crossing in northern Gaza remains open.
Egypt opens the crossing from time to time, mainly to allow people in special categories, including medical patients and Gaza residents studying overseas, to leave the territory or return to it.
Friday marked the seventh weekly border protest since late March.
Israel has said it will prevent any border breach and has stuck to its open-fire policies, such as targeting "main instigators" and those approaching the fence, despite growing global criticism.
The protest came just three days ahead of what the leader of Gaza's ruling Hamas group has said will be a march by tens of thousands who could burst through the border fence into Israel.
