Israeli troops have fatally shot three Palestinians during clashes at the border fence along the besieged Gaza Strip amid the Tel Aviv regime's bloody crackdown on an anti-occupation protest in the Palestinian enclave.
Gaza's health ministry confirmed the deaths, identifying the casualties as Abdel Rahman Qudeih, 23, and Mohammed Abu Rayda, 20. The IDF said they were trying to cause damage to security infrastructure.
During riots on Friday evening, Palestinians broke into the Gaza side of the Kerem Shalom border crossing, which is mostly used for bringing humanitarian aid into the Strip, and set fire to a gas pipeline, the army said.
The killings follow weeks of protests in the besieged Gaza Strip as part of the Great March of Return movement, with marchers demanding the right to return to their homes seized by Israel 70 years ago.
On the following day, Palestinians mark the "nakba", or catastrophe, to commemorate the anniversary of their mass uprooting during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.

On Android, the Timeline feature will be integrated within the Microsoft Launcher app to support cross-device app launching. Microsoft says it has a new Kinect device in the works, with some new sensors and plenty of computing power on board.
No Israelis have been hurt in the weeks of protests and the military has faced worldwide criticism for its use of live ammunition.
Several Palestinians on Saturday placed Molotov cocktails on the security fence before returning to Gaza, the IDF said.
Ezzedine Al Qassam said the dead were all its members and blamed Israel for the explosion, without providing details.
According to an army spokesman, two of the three "infiltrators" had been killed.
Some explosions in the past in the Gaza Strip have resulted from the accidental detonation of explosive materials belonging to militant groups.
But Hamas now says the terrorists, including two commanders, were killed "dismantling booby-trapped spying equipment planted by Israel during the past decade in Gaza".
