Axe-wielding Palestinian is shot dead while trying to breach Gaza border

Last week, Israel hit more than 35 targets belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, after the Israeli army said Palestinian fighters were behind a "barrage of projectiles" fired from Gaza into southern Israel.

The kites have been flown by Gazans who have staged weekly protests since late March during which more than 115 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli army fire.

One Israeli army vehicle was sacked on, and Palestinians planted a grenade that exploded on the Israeli side of the fence, the military said.

Israel's Channel 2 News said the flying fire bombs have destroyed some 1,000 acres and disrupted daily life in communities near the Gaza Strip.

At least 55 journalists covering ongoing protests on the Gaza Strip have been wounded by Israeli soldiers, the Gaza government said on Sunday.

Israel withdrew its troops and settlers from Gaza in 2005, but citing security concerns, maintains tight control of its land and sea borders, which has reduced Gaza's economy to a state of collapse.
