Israel says it only opens fire when necessary to stop damage to the fence, infiltrations and attacks.

Deifallah, who is unemployed like nearly half the Gaza labor force, said he would also join Monday's protest and is not afraid to die. "Hamas is responsible for everything that happens in Gaza, above & below ground", the IDF Spokesperson Unit added.

Protester Ahmed Deifallah, 25, said that President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the embassy there "is causing the volcano to spew".

On Monday, the United States is set to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and on Tuesday Palestinians will commemorate what they call the "Nakba" - Arabic for catastrophe - marking the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians during the war surrounding the creation of Israel.

In the Turkish city of Istanbul, several thousand people protested against the relocation of the U.S. embassy to al-Quds, holding Palestinian and Turkish flags and carrying signs reading "Palestine belongs to the Palestinians" and "al-Quds belongs to Muslims".

Diplomats from many countries have reportedly declined to attend a reception ceremony for the embassy relocation ceremony in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds in a show of anger at President Donald Trump's recognition of the city as Israel's capital.

At another camp east of Gaza City, a large crowd, including many women and children, watched an Israeli drone duel with kites set aloft by the protesters with burning rags attached to them in an effort to set fire to agricultural fields on the other side of the border.

Israeli forces have shot dead a 40-year-old man, Jaber Salem Abu Mustafa, east of Khan Younis, according to the health ministry.

The Israeli military said about 15,000 people participated in the protests.

Hundreds of Gaza residents are gathering near the border with Israel for a seventh weekly protest aimed at shaking off a decade-old blockade of their territory.

The protests, driven by despair among Gaza's 2 million people, are part of a campaign to break the blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt after Hamas overran Gaza in 2007.

Three Israelis who unsuccessfully tried to send an incendiary kite over the border fence, and instead started a fire inside Israel, were detained and held for questioning.
