On Friday, over 30,000 Palestinians demonstrated along the Gaza border, in what Israel describes as a riot orchestrated by the Hamas terrorist group, which rules Gaza, and what Palestinians say was supposed to be a peaceful protest.

Israeli authorities said on Wednesday they had arrested 10 Palestinians from the Gaza Strip over alleged plans to carry out a missile attack and hostage taking against a navy ship. "Anyone who approaches the border is putting his life in danger".

The U.S. has been the largest donor - responsible for almost a third of the budget - to UNRWA, which works to help Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria, providing food, medical and education aid to more than 4,000,000 Palestinian refugees in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. Tamar Zandberg, the newly elected head of the left-wing Meretz party, called on the government to open an independent investigation into the violence on the Gaza border.

"I warn [Gaza protesters] against continuing the provocation".

The plans for the Gazan protest called for demonstrators to set up tents near the border fence and move gradually closer. He argued that there would have been far more bloodshed in the event of a mass border breach.

"This was an incident where soldiers were firing from behind the fence, separated by buffer zones and other objects, firing on individuals well behind the fence, in some cases retreating, not moving forward, or advancing without posing imminent threat", he said.

Pierre Krähenbühl, Commissioner-general of (UNRWA), said:'With the remaining funds that will cover Palestinian refugees until May ... the need for global mobilisation and action in searchfor a solution is now more crucial than ever'. The date is mourned by Palestinians as their "nakba", or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands were uprooted in the 1948 Mideast war over Israel's creation. Life in Gaza has become increasingly harsh after more than a decade of closures, with residents enduring daily power outages lasting hours. Since last Friday Palestinians have been staging Land Day demonstrations that have been brutally repressed by Israeli soldiers. However, Hamas leaders have not said specifically that large crowds would attempt to tear down the fence.
