The health ministry in Gaza has said a 19-year-old Palestinian has died of wounds sustained during confrontations between Palestinian protesters and Israeli troops along Gaza's border.

Since the peaceful border rallies began on March 30, at least 47 Palestinians demonstrators - including five children - have been martyred by cross-border Israeli gunfire, according to Palestinian Health Ministry figures.

Human rights organizations and demonstrators have insisted the Great March of Return is led by civilians and refugees, and not by any political party.

Israel's use of live fire has drawn worldwide criticism.

There are no public regulations that prove the Israeli army adheres to an open-fire policy, however, recent statements by high-ranking officials and recents actions in the Israel-Gaza border was used by these groups as legal basis to challenge the army's rules of engagement.


Aser was shot east of Gaza City on April 27, Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf Al Qudra said. Egypt also restricts movement in and out of Gaza. The protests come at a time of growing frustration for Palestinians as prospects for an independent state look poor.

"The US can not be a mediator or partner in the peace process unless it withdraws its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel", Erekat stated, according to the Palestinian Authority's official news agency, "because it makes no sense for Palestine to be without East Jerusalem as its capital".

Israel believes that the demonstrations are a way for Hamas to perpetrate an attack on Israel, under the guise of non-violent protest.

May 15 is the date the Palestinians mark as the "Nakba", or "Catastrophe", when hundreds of thousands fled or were driven out of their homes during violence in the 1948-49 war between the newly-created state of Israel and its Arab neighbors.
