At least 220 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since major protests backed by Gaza’s Islamist rulers Hamas began in March.

The majority have been shot during protests and clashes, but others have died due to tank fire or air strikes.

One Israeli soldier was killed by a Palestinian sniper.

The often violent demonstrations are usually largest on Fridays, but last week’s was the calmest in months amid talk of a truce deal between Hamas and Israel.

Such a deal would see the protests end in exchange for an easing of Israel’s blockade of the coastal enclave. (AFP) ZH ZH
