Report: One killed, 100 wounded, in Gaza border clashes

Palestinian reports say protestors have gathered along the border fence and are rioting and burning tires.

In addition, KKL firefighters are working on putting out two fires caused by incendiary balloons launched from the coastal enclave, both in the Be’eri forest in southern Israel.

On Thursday, it appeared that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had met with Egypt’s intelligence minister to discuss possible terms for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.

According to one source, the proposed ceasefire would include a year-long period of calm which could potentially be elongated to four years. The possible return of two Israeli civilians and the bodies of IDF soldiers held by Hamas would be discussed in negotiations throughout the year.

Following three days of relative calm along the border, Israel reopened Gaza’s Kerem Shalom border crossing on Wednesday morning to allow for the passage of economic goods into the Strip.

Despite the attempts to broker a ceasefire, Hamas-affiliated sources stated Friday that its people would continue to engage in weekly “Great March of Return” protests along the border – demonstrations and oft-violent riots that have been happening every Friday since March 30.
