Hamas agrees to end protests along Israel-Gaza border

Hamas agrees to end protests along Israel-Gaza border

Most also blame Hamas, the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah, or the UN-not Israel-for their severe economic woes.

The statement said that the two groups highly appreciate and evaluate the efforts of Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations to "ease the suffering of our people and achieve aspirations of ending the Israeli siege".

Egypt and United Nations officials have been seeking a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip, with Qatar providing humanitarian assistance, AFP said.

Israel's army said Tuesday it has opened a military police investigation into the killing of a Palestinian medical volunteer along the Gaza border in June.

The children were killed for allegedly attempting to sabotage the border fence and being involved in placing a home-made explosive device next to the fence.

Hamas will also act on limiting the participants in the marches at a distance of 500 meters far from the border.

Leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine Jamil Mezher told reporters in Gaza that the delegation held a meeting with members of the highest commission of the Great March of Return.

The death raises to seven the number of Palestinians killed as a result of Friday's demonstrations when thousands approached the border fence.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad have also welcomed recent efforts by Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations ostensibly aimed at ending the suffering of the Palestinian people in the occupied West Bank and in blockaded Gaza. It gave their ages as 14 and 15.

DCIP stated that the three children are among six children killed by Israeli forces in the occupied Gaza Strip this month alone, "and at least 50 children killed by Israeli forces or settlers across the Occupied Palestinian Territory this year".

Israel's military fired on a group of Palestinians in the southern Gaza Strip who were launching arson balloons at southern Israel.

Euro-Med described the continued use of excessive force by Israeli forces against Palestinian protesters at the Israel-Gaza fence as "deeply shocking", adding that in the 200 days of protests, Gaza lost 205 residents.
