The Gazan Ministry of Health reported on Saturday that a 15 year old boy who suffered injuries during the Friday protests died of his injuries, this brings the number of Palestinian killed during the weekend protest, dubbed "the Day of Angry Youth", to four.
Major Avichay Adraee, who is the head of the IDF spokesperson unit Arab Media division, dubbed the protest "The day of lost youth" and used graphics depicting Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah and Emirati singer Ahlam next to Palestinian youths to highlight the difference between "success" and "failed".

Thousands of Palestinians attended the funerals of those killed.   
Supreme sharia judge in the Palestinian Authority and PA  President Mahmoud Abbas’s adviser on religious and Islamic affairs Mahmoud al-Habash lashed out at Hamas during Friday's sermon.
"The Marches of Return gamble with the lives of children and women, which does not serve Palestine," he said.
Speaking in the presence of Abbas, al-Habash argues that "the children are being sent to their death facing occupation soldiers, this does not serve Palestine.''
He also added that: ''The leadership in Gaza is having a good time, when what it is meant to do is visit tents set by those who morn and funerals. They gamble on the life of the young, when they have many agendas and wish to revive themselves with the blood of our people."
"We have much to say to the Israeli occupation and to Hamas", he added.
Prime Minister Netanyahu's Arab Media Spokesperson Ofir Gendelman lauded al-Habash on social media for "saying things as they are."
Hamas Spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri lashed out at al-Habash on Twitter by saying that "these statements reveal that the PA is against all resistance, peaceful and non-peaceful [those who say such things] must know Gaza will not live under the boots of the Israeli occupation as others do."
