During a Palestinian protest against the Bahrain conference held on Tuesday on the Gaza security fence, IDF forces opened fire on the protesters injuring 12 Palestinians, the Gaza Ministry of Health reported.

Meanwhile, ten fires erupted in Gaza border communities due to incendiary balloons coming in from the Strip. On Tuesday morning Israel blocked fuel deliveries to the Gaza Strip, after several incendiary balloons caused fires on Monday.  Additional protests took place across the West Bank, which is controlled by the Palestinian Authority, such as in the city of Tulkarem. 
The ‘Peace to Prosperity’ economic plan calls on Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States to agree to a massive and complex series of arrangements that will increase the quality of life among Palestinians and eventually lead to a Palestinian state. 

A top ranking Saudi diplomat spoke with Globes on Friday and said that “History and Allah brought a real opportunity...the blood conflict had lasted too long. Us Saudis and all Gulf States plus Egypt and Jordan realize that the age of going to war with Israel is over.”  

Regarding the Palestinian refusal to take part in the conference, he said that “Maybe it is hard for them to part with the character of the ever-suffering victim and they don’t believe they could survive without it.”

If they accept the American peace plan, he said, they will be given “sums they never dreamed of.” 

The official slammed Palestinian leadership as “irresponsible” for not even considering the "Deal of the Century," which will bring $50 billion to their people, he said.
