A Palestinian was killed on Friday (December 28th) by Israeli gunfire during protests and clashes near Israel's security barrier to the Gaza Strip, the health ministry said in the Palestinian territory.

Karam Fayyad, 26, was killed east of the city of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip, ministry spokesman Achraf Al-Qodra said. Eight more Palestinians were wounded in these new clashes.

About 5,000 Palestinians demonstrated on Friday at various points in the fence, throwing stones at soldiers and explosive devices that fell on their side of the border, an Israeli military spokesman told Reuters. Agence France-Presse, noting that the Israeli army did not comment on information about Palestinian victims.

Since March 30 and the beginning of the mobilization called "March of Return", at least 240 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire. In addition to the end of the Israeli blockade imposed on Gaza for more than ten years, this movement calls for the return of Palestinian refugees to the lands they fled from or expelled at the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. Two Israeli soldiers have been killed since then.

Israel defends itself against accusations of excessive use of force, accusing Hamas, the Islamist movement in power in Gaza, of using mobilization as a cover for "Terrorist activities".
