Violence erupts amid Gaza cease-fire, 2 Palestinians killed

The Latest: Israel says it struck Hamas position in Gaza

Around 9,000 Palestinians participated Friday in the violent weekly border protest.

Ali al-Alul, 55, was killed on the same stretch of the border in southern Gaza where medical volunteer Abdullah al-Qatati was fatally shot, the ministry said.

It said 200 Palestinians were on the boats but that no one was hurt in the incident.

Israel's military said on Friday that no rockets were fired from Gaza at Israel overnight and it conducted no airstrikes.

Spurs have slashed Rose's valuation from £55m to £60m (which they wanted during the summer transfer window of 2017) to £25m to £30m.

But the border was otherwise calm after a reported deal to end all rocket fire into Israel and air strikes on Gaza appeared to take effect around midnight (2100 GMT) on Thursday.

The Israeli security cabinet and the Hamas leadership met separately on Thursday, with the truce offer brokered by Egypt and the United Nations on the table.

Israeli tanks struck two Hamas posts in the Gaza Strip Friday evening after a grenade was hurled at troops and amid intense violence during the mass riots in several locations along the border.

Protesters marking the 20th week of the "Return March" demonstrations rioted along five spots along the border throwing rocks at Israeli soldiers and burning tires and launching incendiary kites into Israel from the Strip, causing at least six fires.

It would be the third such truce in a month.

Qattati's killing followed that of another medic in June, Razan al-Najjar, when she was shot dead while treating Palestinians wounded by Israeli forces using live fire, rubber-coated bullets and tear gas.
