Thousands of Palestinians have gathered along Israel´s fortified border fence with Gaza as regular protests resume after a three-week pause.
Gaza´s health ministry said Friday four Palestinians were wounded by Israeli live fire during the restrained demonstrations at several sections of the frontier.
The territory´s Hamas rulers had put the weekly marches on hold since mid-November following a short round of cross-border fighting with Israel.
The fighting, the worst in months, was sparked by an Israeli targeted killing of a senior commander from the smaller but more radical Islamic Jihad group.
The protests resumed as leaders from Hamas and Islamic Jihad are in Cairo, talking with Egyptian mediators about cementing a ceasefire with Israel that is expected to ease Gaza´s 12-year-old blockade.
