Two young Palestinians were shot dead by IDF forces during the clashes along the Gaza Border with Israel, the Palestinian Ministry of Health reported on Saturday.
The two men are Mohammed Jehad Sa'ad, 20, and Adham Nedal Amara, 17.
Two hundred and twenty four Palestinian were been injured, including 26 children and eight women. Among the injured were four reporters and three medical staff members, the statement said.
IDF Arabic spokesperson released a video on Saturday as mass protests erupt along the Gaza Strip border in which mothers in the Hamas-controlled territory are warned to "guard the lives of their children."
"A child who throws stones [on IDF troops] is not a hero," the video also said.
Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh joined the riots along with members of the Egyptian intelligence, Palestinian media reported.
Living conditions under the Radical Islamic terrorist group Hamas had deteriorated so badly young people are willing to join the massive protests in exchange for a sandwich and a promise to have access to free Wi-Fi, Haaretz reported on Friday.
