The enclave's health ministry says more than 220 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli troops at the protests.

He noted that dozens were injured in eastern Gaza, including 17 shot by live Israeli soldiers' gunshots, adding that they were referred to hospitals all over Gaza while the others were treated by paramedics in the field.

Israeli security forces arrested a Palestinian man on Saturday suspected of killing an Israeli woman found dead two days ago in a forest on the outskirts of Jerusalem, police said.

Gaza's Hamas rulers have organized mass demonstrations along the frontier every Friday since March, in part to protest against the Israeli and Egyptian blockade on the territory imposed when the Islamic militant group seized power in 2007.

About 7,000 people were protesting at several points along the fence, the military said, adding that protesters were clashing with troops and that some had thrown explosive devices and grenades that landed on the Gaza side of the fence.

The IDF fired live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas to chase protesters away from the border fence separating Israel from the Palestinian enclave. Earlier this week, Israel began reinforcing its fence, erecting a galvanized steel barrier six meters (20 feet) high that will run the length of Gaza's perimeter.

Hundreds of Palestinian demonstrators arrived on Friday afternoon in eastern Gaza Strip to join the 46th rallies, part of a weekly anti-Israel protests, better known as the "Great March of Return", which started late last March.

At least 249 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since then, the majority shot during clashes, though others have been hit by tank fire or air strikes. More than 6,000 of the injured were struck by Israeli army gunshots.

In the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, meanwhile, thousands of Palestinians attended the funerals of the teenagers.
