Gaza [Palestine], April 14 (ANI): One Palestinian was killed and 969 were wounded in a fire outbreak reportedly conducted by the Israeli forces during the on-going Israel-Palestine clashes at the Gaza border on Friday.

More than 10,000 protestors marched along the Israel-Gaza border while resorting to burning tires and Israeli flags, various media houses quoted the Gaza Health Ministry as saying.

According to the Israeli army, protests were held at five different sites along the border.
