One Palestinian was killed and hundreds were injured in confrontations with Israeli soldiers at multiple spots along Gaza's border with Israel following a third consecutive Friday of protests dubbed "Burning Flag Friday", in reference to the Israeli blue and white flag. This statement was submitted to the Israeli Supreme Court, in response to a petition by two injured Palestinians, who were denied passage to a Ramallah hospital, reportedly leading to the amputation of limbs. Medics at the scene in the Rafah area said the explosion was caused by Israel. The rioters also threw explosives and rocks toward the Israeli side of the border and attempted to fly a kite over to the Israeli side that had a firebomb attached to it.

Gaza health officials said 363 people were wounded by Israeli fire or treated for tear gas inhalation, but did not provide a breakdown. "We have no knowledge of any Israeli strike in the area", he said.
Protesters want refugees to be allowed to return to ancestral land now in Israel.
"While it appears that the vast majority of Palestinians who have gathered to protest have been peaceful, we object to reported cases of non-peaceful actions carried out by some Gaza protesters, and we call on them to exercise their rights nonviolently".
The protests since March 30 posed a challenge to Israel, which dismissed criticism of its use of live fire, saying its rules of engagement are necessary and will not change.
The Israeli army said that about 10,000 Palestinians protested on Friday along the Gaza border.
