A Palestinian medic was killed by Israeli fire during protests along the Gaza-Israel border on Friday after a deadly flare-up between the two sides.

An Egyptian-brokered truce ended a two-day wave of rocket barrages and air strikes between Israel and Gaza, but the border remained tense as thousands of Gazans gathered for protests in which two Palestinians were killed and scores wounded.

The protests came after a deal to end all rocket fire into Israel and air strikes on the Gaza Strip appeared to go into effect around midnight (2100 GMT) on Thursday.

Qatati, who was in his 20s and a volunteer with the government medical services, was shot in the chest east of Rafah in southern Gaza, a health ministry spokesman told AFP. Israeli tanks did, however, open fire on a pair of Hamas sites during the day as well.

Endangered orca that sparked international rescue plan spotted in BC waters
Cottrell says Canadian vessels are out on the waters off southwestern Vancouver Island but heavy fog is making the search hard . Fisheries and Oceans Canada received the proposed rescue plan for its American counterparts on Friday, he said.

It was one of the most serious flareups since the 2014 Gaza war and followed months of escalating tensions.

So, don't forget that while we see this rocket war aimed at Israeli civilian population centers in part because of the Gaza evacuation, we are now talking about the continued so-called land for peace formula and for some sort of creation ultimately of a Palestinian state in the West bank.

The riots began in March and was dubbed by Hamas as a "March of Return" to protest Israel and to bring attention to the Palestinian cause.

If you have round pegs in round holes, and all of them are doing the right job at the same time, then you are going to do well. It was Shaw, who just like Pogba has endured some tough times under Mourinho , who was the unlikely late hero for United .

During the rally, at least 30 Palestinians were affected by Israeli tear gas, according to Gaza's Health Ministry.

It said 200 Palestinians were on the boats but that no one was hurt in the incident. "The second, through the militants who are attempting to approach and attack the border line, is to use the demonstrators as human shields for the group's terrorist ambitions, as well as to provoke a strong Israeli response that will garner headlines and support for their efforts".

Israel, which has imposed a crippling blockade on Gaza for a decade, prevents boats from the enclave sailing further than six nautical miles offshore.

There was no official confirmation from Israel or Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas but there were no fresh strikes Friday.
