Palestinian woman shot by Israeli sniper in east of Gaza: Maan

Israeli forces have shot dead seven Palestinians and wounded more than 1,000 as tens of thousands participated in a mass demonstration demanding the right of return for Palestinian refugees.

It is reported that the Palestinian press association denounced the murder of Murtaja, and announced plans to contact the International Court of Justice in The Hague regarding the matter.

Israel says it has only opened fire when necessary to stop damage to the border fence, infiltrations and attempted attacks.

The Israeli military responded with riot dispersal means, and fired in accordance with the rules of engagement, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said in a statement.

It added that the army "will not allow the region to become a combat zone" and that it viewed the incident with "great severity".

Also in Australia, almost 1,000 demonstrators joined a protest rally in Melbourn dubbed "Free Palestine" to censure Israeli regime's brutal violence - including live fire - used against Palestinian protesters in occupied territories in recent days.

Two of those killed were children under the age of 18: Hussein Muhammad Adnan Madi, 13, shot in the stomach with live fire east of Gaza City, and Alaa al-Din Yahya Ismail al-Zamli, 15, fatally wounded east of Rafah.

The European Union on Saturday issued a statement saying Friday's violence "raises serious questions about the proportionate use of force which must be addressed". The injured Palestinian was taken to hospital in severe condition.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society has "also warned of a shortage of medical supplies and of personal protective equipment for their 400-person team deployed across Gaza".

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights stated its "grave concern" for further violence ahead of Friday's demonstrations. The deaths brought to at least 31 the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli fire since last week. No Israelis have been injured.

"The killing and wounding of yet more unarmed Palestinian protesters yesterday by Israeli forces in Gaza is an outrage".

Mr Regev and those he represents perhaps need to understand that it is possible to recognise and defend the state of Israel as a legal entity, with all that this entails in terms of its sovereignty and integrity, without remaining silent about its abuses of human rights and of worldwide law.

In the West Bank political capital of Ramallah, around 50 Palestinian journalists held a vigil for Murtaja.
