More than hundred Palestinians injured by Israeli forces during Gaza protest

More than hundred Palestinians injured by Israeli forces during Gaza protest

Mladenov also urged the Palestinian Authority not to "abandon" Gaza because "giving up on Gaza will have dire consequences for the Palestinian cause".

Israeli leaders have said they will not tolerate rocket attacks or attempts, during the border protests, to breach Israel's frontier fence with the Palestinian territory of two million people.

Until such a military action is approved, Tel Aviv is sticking to less coercive methods to convince Hamas to quell the violence.

Since the beginning of "The Great March of Return" on March 30, thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza - which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege - have been protesting at the eastern borders of the besieged enclave to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel. Earlier, Israel halted Qatari fuel shipments to Gaza's power plant. The Palestinian factions, however, denied launching the projectiles, at the same time, promising to continue their border protests.

Much may depend on the scope and intensity of a planned Palestinian protest at the border on Friday, where often violent demonstrations have been held over the past six months. Israel's use of deadly force was condemned by the UN General Assembly and numerous humanitarian groups.

Thursday's meeting came within the framework of ongoing efforts by Cairo to mediate a truce between Israel and Gaza-based resistance groups. Alarmed by new violence and the prospect of it leading to a new full-scale war akin to 2014's Operation Protective Edge, the United Nations and the European Union for the reduction of tensions.

Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov has thanked the State of Qatar for its urgent and generous response by providing $60m for the purchase of fuel to increase the supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip. Earlier today, Amnesty published a statement warning of the proclaimed Israeli "zero tolerance" policy against the border demonstration, fearing that it may "lead to more Palestinian deaths".

Cairo said this was a last-ditch effort to stave off ‎a military conflict between Hamas and Israel.‎.

Israeli soldiers are positioned as Palestinian protesters arrive during a protest along the Israel Gaza border in Israel, Friday, Oct. 19, 2018.
