Tens of teargas canisters fired by Israeli troops, fall over Palestinian protesters at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, Friday, June 8, 2018.
Israel Defense Forces investigators say initial findings show that 22-year-old Gazan nurse Razan Ashraf Najjar was not deliberately targeted but rather was inadvertently hit by gunfire during violence at the Gaza-Israel border last week. The number of demonstrators is expected to increase later on the afternoon.
Israel says many protest participants were Hamas members and militants trying to breach the border and launch attacks. Two-thirds of Gaza's 2 million residents are descendants of refugees.

A spokeswoman for Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said Tuesday that Mr. France would also oppose any wording that described the Iran pact as obsolete, the official added.
Israel has drawn worldwide condemnation for its use of deadly force during the mass demonstrations. The overwhelming majority of the dead and wounded have been unarmed, according to Gaza health officials. The UN and European Union have accused Israel of using excessive force, while rights groups say the open fire orders are illegal because soldiers are shooting toward unarmed people when their lives are not in imminent danger.
In the leaflets, the army told Gazans that approaching the border fence is liable to be "severely detrimental". Friday's demonstrations are meant to coincide with "Jerusalem Day", a day of protest against Israeli control of the city of Jerusalem.
In Iran's capital of Tehran, thousands joined a Jerusalem Day march on Friday, chanting "Death to Israel" and burning a Trump effigy. This year, the protests take on added significance after the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Colonel Uri Mendes, deputy head of the Civil Administration - the Israeli military body in charge of the day to day management of the occupation - made the remarks on Sunday in a meeting of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee's Subcommittee for the occupied West Bank.
