Six Palestinians martyred in clashes on Israel border

At least 203 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza since protests began on 30 March.

A Palestinian protester hurls stones towards Israeli troops during a protest at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, Friday, Oct. 12, 2018.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said about 15,000 Palestinians gathered along fence.

Another wanted Palestinian, who is suspected of killing two Israeli colleagues and wounding a third in the northern West Bank last Sunday, remains on the run. It said that several Gazans later embarked on the border and approached an IDF sniper's post before being shot dead. Most of the Palestinians were killed during border demonstrations, though others died in air strikes and tank shelling.

One Israeli soldier has been killed.

A later IDF statement called it a "blatant terror attack that was thwarted by IDF troops quickly and professionally which prevented a possible terror attack against civilians and IDF troops".

A wave of mainly lone-wolf Palestinian attacks against Israelis in the West Bank erupted in 2015 but had largely abated.

Since March, Hamas has orchestrated near-weekly protests along the fence.

It said they planted an "explosive device" there, which blew up and "set the security fence on fire".

Nearly every evening, thousands of Gazans have been gathering for violent demonstrations at the Erez crossing and elsewhere, in what is regarded by some as part of Hamas's attempts to signal to Israel that it wants an economic solution to the Gaza Strip.

The protests have regularly occurred on Fridays, with as many as tens of thousands of Palestinians gathering at multiple locations along the Gaza fence.

"As long as the violence in the Gaza Strip does not stop completely, including the sending of incendiary balloons and burning tires toward the Israeli towns, the fuel and gas supplies to the Gaza Strip will not be replenished", Liberman wrote on Twitter Saturday evening, Israel's Channel Two reported.
