At least three Palestinians died Friday, and a fourth died Saturday after being shot the day before, amid violence between protesters and Israeli troops along the Gaza-Israel border, Palestinian officials say. This takes the total number of the Palestinians killed by the Israeli fire to 45 since the march began on March 30.

The Israeli air force conducted airstrikes on six naval objects of Hamas in the Gaza strip.

The Palestinians say Israel has used excessive force, and its use of live fire has drawn worldwide criticism.

On Saturday, a Palestinian teenager succumbed to injuries he sustained during the Israeli military's crackdown against mass anti-occupation protests in the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to the ministry, the Palestinian teenager was hit in the head during protests in southern Gaza on Friday.

"Every week, we witness instances of use of lethal force against unarmed demonstrators", the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, said in a statement.

Israel has refused any right of return for Palestinians who were expelled or fled and became refugees after the country declared independence in 1948, fearing that it would lose its Jewish majority.

The New York Times, citing several witnesses in the area, reports that two Palestinians in the group wielded handguns, firing on Israeli soldiers before turning to flee when the troops retaliated with a hand grenade.

Amnesty International is demanding "criminal prosecutions of those responsible" for what it describes as a "murderous assault" on Palestinians participating in the "March of Return" protests, which have included violent rioters.

About a half hour earlier, two Palestinians damaged the security fence and tried to cross into Israel.

The protests are to culminate May 15, the anniversary of Israel's founding.

"It does not have operational solutions, so it is cynically using Palestinian citizens to create provocations and to grab the attention of the worldwide community", the former IDF southern commander told the Jerusalem Post Conference in NY. However, it is not supported by global law.
