One Palestinian was killed and 41 were wounded by live Israeli fire, during protests at the Gaza border, on Friday, the Gaza Health Ministry said.

Earlier Friday the Palestinian Health Ministry announced that 183 Gazans were killed by Israeli fire since the protests set off on March 30.

According to Mo'men's family, he was protesting for an end to the 12-year Israeli blockade and for the right of return of Palestinian refugees as part of the Great March of Return rallies that began on March 30. The soldiers fired back with tear gas and gunshots.

The Israeli army said more than 10,000 people had gathered in several locations along the border on Friday evening.

"The rioters are hurling grenades and explosive devices, burning tires and hurling rocks at IDF troops and the security fence".

Al-Quds said Israel's finance minister has made a decision to compensate the family of the Israeli settler killed in a recent stabbing near Bethlehem from the Palestinian Authority's tax revenues.

No Israeli casualties were reported.

Abbas also met in Paris with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, said al-Hayat al-Jadida, which quoted Olmert telling Palestine TV that everyone understands that there is no alternative to the two-state solution and that Abbas is the only one capable of achieving that goal.

"We will carry on with the marches of return until we achieve the goals of lifting the siege", Sinwar told Palestinian protesters in eastern Gaza city as he joined the weekly march.

Over the past few days, dozens of Palestinian activists formed a unit called the unit of night confusion, which demonstrates every night near the border with Israel.
