At least 4 Palestinians killed in Gaza explosion - health ministry

An explosion in the southern Gaza Strip killed at least two Palestinians on Saturday, the local health ministry said.

Medics at the scene blamed an Israeli tank shell for the explosion but an Israeli military spokesman denied the army's involvement: "We have no knowledge of any Israeli strike in the area", he said.

On Friday, one Palestinian was killed and 233 were wouned by live israeli fire as more than 10,000 protested along the Israel-Gaza border, burning tires and Israeli flags, the Gaza Health Ministry said.

The young star's Internet fame also earned the self-professed "country boy" a guest spot on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week. Other performers also got the chance to perform for the crowd, which was incredibly responsive despite the unusual venue.

The Saturday's deaths took the toll to over 30 since the Great March of Return protests erupted on March 30. Palestinians call that day "Al-Nakba", Arabic for "the catastrophe".

They marched "to practice their natural and humanitarian right to hold demonstrations calling for liberation and return", he said.

Palestinian protesters pull a metal cable as they try to take down a section of barbed wire at the border fence with Israel, east of Gaza City in the central Gaza Strip, on April 13, 2018. Israel and Egypt have been imposing a blockade on the Gaza Strip since 2007, severely restricting imports and exports to and from the territory, as well as the freedom of movement for the enclave's inhabitants. Israel has accused Hamas and other militant groups of using the protests as a cover for attacks and says its snipers have only targeted "main instigators".
