Palestinian dies of wounds in clashes on Gaza border

Israel retaliates

The military has struck various targets in Gaza in recent days and killed two Palestinians who tried to infiltrate Israel after a bomb on the border wounded four Israeli soldiers.

"Hamas is responsible for everything that happens in the Gaza Strip, above and below ground".

Trump's controversial announcement has undermined the likelihood of a reconciliation, and damaged the already fragile Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

Al-Emadi, whose country maintains contacts with the Islamic militant group Hamas and has hosted its leaders, coordinates Qatar's relief and reconstruction projects in Gaza.

A series of cross-border exchanges have erupted since, in the most intensive exchange since the 2014 war.

Ahmed Abu Helo, 19, died "as a result of wounds he received last Friday east of Rafah (in southern Gaza)", a health ministry statement said, adding he had been injured in clashes with Israeli forces along the border. The explosive device was planted below the flag on the Palestinian side of the fence. Two of the soldiers are in serious condition, the army said, and were evacuated by helicopter to Soroka-University Medical Center in Beersheba.

Israeli army spokesman Ronin Manlis accused Hamas of trying to turn the border area into an arena for confrontation, stressing that the army would not allow it.

Israeli forces also raided Palestinian homes in the West Bank, making 20 arrests.

"The war there will be more risky and costly, and Israel believes that, by playing the time factor, things in Gaza may continue to calm", he said.

The Gaza Strip, which has suffered a crippling Israeli-Egyptian air/land/sea blockade since 2007, has seven border crossings linking it to the outside world.
