The Palestinian health ministry said on Friday that at least three demonstrators, including a 12-year-old boy, were killed and 126 were wounded by IDF fire during violent clashes that erupted along Gaza Strip’s frontier with Israel as some 20,000 protesters gathered along the security fence as part of the weekly March of Return demonstrations.

The protesters set alight tires and threw explosive devices at IDF troops, who responded with riot control measures, which for the first time included the use of sponge-tipped bullets.
