Seven dead, 252 wounded in Gaza

Seven Palestinians were killed and at least 252 wounded during protests at the Gaza-Israel border, the Gaza Health Ministry said.

Some 15,000 Palestinians gathered at the weekly protest at the border. The Israel Defense Forces said that protesters were throwing bombs and explosive devices prompting them to respond with "riot dispersal means and live fire." Gaza health officials said that 154 of the wounded were hit by live ammunition.

Because of the violence at the border, fuel deliveries to Gaza through Israel have been halted.
