The Kerem Shalom and the Erez (Beit Hanoun) border crossings in the besieged Gaza Strip were reopened by Israeli authorities, on Sunday morning, after closing for over a week during the Israeli escalation.

Egyptian security mediators were visiting the region to cement ceasefire understanding between Israel and Gaza militants, led by the Islamist Hamas group.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said troops, facing around 6,000 Palestinians at the border with Gaza, opened fire when some of them approached the fortified fence.

This week's demonstrations were seen as a key test for a fragile truce agreed between Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas and Israel.

After Israel's 2014 onslaught against the Gaza Strip (in which more than 2,150 Palestinians were killed), Israel began allowing Palestinian fishermen to ply their trade up to six nautical miles off Gaza's coast before increasing the fishing zone to 12 nautical miles.

Gaza's health ministry said Friday that a 24-year old Palestinian was killed during the border protest and 30 others were wounded by gunfire.

The United States' Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt blasted the UN Security Council Thursday for "rehashing exhausted talking points" about Israel and urged them to support the Trump administration's upcoming Mideast peace plan between Israelis and Palestinians.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has boycotted U.S. peace efforts since late 2017 when the USA president made a decision to move his embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in violation of a decades-US policy.

Israel says its blockade is necessary to isolate Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas, with whom it has fought three wars since 2008.

President Donald Trump's Middle East envoy berated the UN Security Council on Thursday for "rehashing exhausted talking points" criticizing Israeli settlements and said an upcoming USA peace plan would provide a fresh approach.
