1ST LEAD Israeli fire kills six along Gaza border, Palestinians say By Saud Abu Ramadan and Eliyahu Kamisher, dpa

Gaza City (dpa) - Israeli gunfire killed six Palestinians during clashes and demonstrations along the Gaza border on Friday, the Hamas-controlled Gaza Health Ministry said.

The Israeli army said that around 14,000 Palestinian have gathered along the border where they are burning tyres and throwing rocks, explosives and grenades.

A number of Palestinians were shot and killed by Israeli soldiers when they crossed through the fence that separates Gaza from Israel, the military said.

Some 60 Palestinians were injured along the border area, including 10 minors, Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qedra said.

"[Israeli] troops are responding with riot dispersal means and fire in accordance with standard operating procedures," the military said.

Palestinians have been staging semi-regular protests along the Gaza border since March. The demonstrations, which often include rock throwing and other violent acts, are aimed at pressuring Israel to lift a decade-long blockade on the territory.

During the protests and clashes with Israeli forces, 204 Palestinians have died, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

International rights groups and the United Nations have criticized Israel‘s use of live fire on the border protesters as disproportionate. Israel says it is defending its border from attempted Palestinian attacks.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said in Istanbul on Friday that his militant group is talking with Qatar, Egypt and the United Nations to broker "understandings that could bring calm for breaking the siege."
