As on every Friday, protests broke out along the Gaza border with some 7,000 people demonstrating. Some 74 people were reported as having been injured, as well as four paramedics and two reporters.

Of those injured during the weekly protest, 47 were hurt by live fire coming from Israeli territory.  This week's protest march was called "Burning the Israeli Flag."

Stones were thrown in large waves at the fence along the border, as well as explosive devices.

This is a developing story.
