    TEL AVIV - A Palestinian protestor was killed Friday in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, during ongoing clashes with the Israeli army at the defensive barrier between Gaza and Israel.

    The incident occurred during the 'March of Return' held on Friday at the border. Palestinian media quoted medical sources as saying that the protestor, a 17-year-old named Bilal Mustafa Khafajah, was hit in the chest by an Israeli bullet.

    The same sources say that 94 were injured including 30 by live bullets. Local sources say that the protestors made use of incendiary kites and balloons. One sparked a fire in Rafah at an Israeli Defense Forces communication tower, where there were advanced electronic surveillance devices. The day's demonstrations along the Gaza border were organized by Hamas in protest against the lack of a new ceasefire agreement in Cairo. Thousands took part in the protests and were brought to the border by vehicles provided by Hamas.

    The day's demonstrations were ''dedicated'' to US president Donald Trump. One group of protestors staged a mock public execution of both him and Israeli prime minister Benyamin Netanyahu using dolls that resembled them.
