Rocket fired toward Israel after Gaza crossings open

The Latest: Israeli army: 30,000 protesters at Gaza border

In Gaza a year ago, the date was also used to highlight the Palestinian right of return. The rocket destroyed a house and injured seven people, including two children and a baby.

Ambulances lined up in front of clinics and police supervised encampments.

According to a Gaza rights group and a count by The Associated Press, 196 Palestinians were killed in the demonstrations over the past year, including 41 minors, and thousands were wounded by live fire.

The Gazan Health Ministry said Saturday that at least 316 Palestinians had been injured.

Israel accuses Hamas of orchestrating violence, and one of its soldiers has been killed by a Palestinian sniper along the border.

The Egyptian delegation was invited to the fence to closely observe "restraint and public order" as Hamas deployed about 8,000 security personnel and security officers dressed in orange vests. Hamas blames the blockade and punitive measures by its West Bank-based Palestinian Authority for worsening the living conditions.

Palestinians gather as tear gas is fired by Israeli forces during a protest.

The human rights group noted that just weeks ago, an independent United Nations commission of inquiry stated that Israel's systematic use of lethal force against protesters may amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.

This was Israel's brutal response to what Brigadier General Ronen Manelis, a spokesman for the Israeli army, acknowledged were "remarkably restrained" demonstrations. Restrictions had also been placed on the fishing zone.

On Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly instructed the army to prepare for the possibility of a "broad" campaign in Gaza. The violence has heightened tensions just over a week before Israeli national elections.

Hamas officials say that Israel is offering a package of economic incentives in exchange for calm along the volatile border.

Thousands of Palestinians flock to Gaza's border with Israel to participate in the 43rd anniversary of Land's Day, March 30, 2019.

"All necessary measures need to be taken to ensure children are not targeted", Geert Cappelaere, UNICEF's regional director in the Middle East and North Africa, said on Thursday. Humanitarian officials urged restraint for Saturday's anniversary to avoid any further bloodshed.

The demonstrators are calling for Palestinians to be allowed to return to land their families fled or were expelled from during the 1948 war that accompanied Israel's creation.

Meanwhile, leaders of various Arab countries held a meeting in Tunis, capital of Tunisia and renewed a call for a separate state of Palestine.

The Israeli military also used a loud sound machine to spray blue-colored water on demonstrators. "It's been my dream to come to Jaffa because it's my city", he later said. "It has nothing to do with what the politicians do".

Earlier, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) reported air alerts in two areas in southern Israel.
