Gaza - Three Palestinians were shot and killed during clashes

with Israeli soldiers along the Gaza Strip border, where Palestinians

have been holding protests nearly every week.

Among the dead was a 14-year-old who had been shot in the chest, the

Health Ministry in Gaza said Friday.

In addition, more than 190 Palestinians were injured, including 47

with gunshot wounds.

According to the Israeli army, more than 10,000 Palestinians had

gathered along various points of the border security fence and threw

petrol bombs, explosives and stones at soldiers.

In reaction, the Israeli air force attacked a base of Hamas, Gaza's

ruling group.

Since the end of March, 189 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli

soldiers at the border, according to the ministry.

Palestinians have been staging marches along the Gaza border since

March, calling for an end to the Israeli blockade of Gaza and other

demands. Israel says the marches are veiled attempts by the Islamist

Hamas group to carry out attacks on the border area.
