A 25-year-old Palestinian was killed and 90 were wounded by Israeli army fire, Gaza health officials said.

The breach comes amid another round of violent riots along the Israeli-Gaza border that have occurred nearly weekly for the past several months.

Hamas terrorists still managed to start at least 26 fires on Israeli territory on Friday, in farmland, parks and forests located in the Gaza Belt region, via the arson terror kites and incendiary balloons launches from the other side of the border.

Under the Egyptian-brokered truce, Israel would ease the restrictions on goods coming into Gaza through its border crossings, and the Egyptian crossing into the Gaza Strip would be reopened, according to a report by Hadashot news.

Israel's military says a tank fired at a Hamas military post in Gaza after Palestinians briefly crossed the frontier and threw bombs.

According to a press release from the administration of the Rafah border crossing, an Arouri-led delegation including leading group members Mousa Abu Marzouk, Izzat al Rishq and Hussam Badran crossed the border into the Gaza Strip.


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday delayed a planned visit to Colombia amid speculation that a truce agreement could be reached within days.

Al-Suri and Yaghi's death bring the death toll of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since "The Great March of Return" protests began on March 30th to 157.

But with U.S. aid to UNRWA cut and the continued siege on the area, Hamas may need to finally relinquish some of its control for the sake of the Palestinians in Gaza. Egypt also restricts movement in and out of Gaza on its border.

Spokesperson of the Israeli army said in a statement that naval forces located and intercepted a Gaza-bound ship and steered it to the Ashdod seaport.

Freedom was the second boat of the "Freedom Flotilla" to be intercepted en route to break the blockade on Gaza, organisers said.

Israel and Palestinian militants have fought three wars since 2008 in Gaza, an economically disadvantaged 365 square kilometer territory where more than two million Palestinians reside.
