It said at one location at least two Palestinian militants fired guns at its forces and others threw grenades.

The other images she showed were of Messi standing up to an Israeli referee-soldier, of the Argentine team with the word "APARTHEID" behind them, of street protests in Argentina and of Gazan footballer Mohammed Khalil Obeid who was shot in his both knees by an Israeli sniper during the Great March of Return protests.

The Palestinians killed on Friday were three adult men and a 15-year-old boy, Gaza medics said.

Five journalists were injured, including AFP photographer Mohamed al-Baba, who was shot in his right foot, and a cameraman working for the al-Aqsa Radio of Hamas, who was hit with a tear gas canister in his back, the Health Ministry in Gaza said.

The United States shifted its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem in May on the 70th anniversary of the creation of Israel, in a move met with condemnation from the Palestinians and many of Washington's worldwide allies.

Protester Fadi Saleh said the frequent marches have helped revive sympathies in the Arab world for the Palestinians, but that more could be done.

Ismael Haniyyah, Hamas political bureau chief, wrote in a column published by MEE on Thursday that the Great March aims to stress the right of return for refugees, denounce the USA embassy move to Jerusalem and push to "send a loud message to the world that Gaza will not succumb to a slow death, and to demand an immediate and unconditional end to the siege".

Palestinian UN Ambassador Riad Mansur said that Kuwait's resolution draft was "completely balanced" and stated that his draft will be nearly entirely identical.

Buenos Aires: Argentina have called off a World Cup warm-up friendly against Israel following protests by pro-Palestinian groups.

This is one of the weekly protests by the Palestinians that commemorate Naksa Day ("day of the setback"), when Palestinians were expelled from West Bank and Gaza Strip during the 1948 and 1967 wars with Israel.

Some Palestinians launched kites rigged with incendiary devices, which were intercepted by small military drones.

Organizers linked the protests to the annual "Quds Day" events in Iran, which like the Hamas terror group that rules the Gaza Strip, preaches Israel's destruction and was incensed by the USA recognition in December of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

The kites have become a potent symbol of a wave of Palestinian protests that broke out on March 30 against Israel's crippling decade-long blockade of Gaza. Tel Aviv denies any excessive use of force, saying that the riots are violent and pose a threat to the security of Israel, and it is acting in self-defense.

"We are not asking for the moon", said Amer Abu Khalaf, a 20-year-old business administration student who took part in Friday's protest.
