Another 17 protesters were wounded by Israeli live fire at five separate demonstration sites, it added. Israel, which has been accused of using excessive force, says it does what it must to protect its borders.

Weekly anti-Israel rallies and protests had been organised since the start of the marches, where Gaza health ministry officials said that over 250 Palestinians, including 47 children, were killed and around 26,000 injured.

Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers posted in watchtowers in Khan Younis city, also in southern Gaza, opened fire on Palestinian farmers on nearby farmlands; no injuries were reported.

"They are hurling rocks at (Israeli) troops and towards the security fence, as well as a number of explosive devices that did not cross the fence", a spokesman said, adding that they had heard grenade explosions.

The Israeli army declined to comment on the death, but said that 8,200 "rioters and demonstrators" had been protesting along the frontier.

Gaza is home to 2 million Palestinians, almost all of them the stateless descendents of people who fled or were driven out of Israel on its founding in 1948.

Israel and Egypt imposed a security blockade on the enclave after Hamas seized control of it in 2007, which the World Bank says has reduced the local economy to a state of collapse. At least 50 of the casualties have been identified as members of Hamas, which Israel (and the US) consider a terrorist organization.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have for almost a year gathered at least weekly along the heavily fortified frontier for often-violent protests, calling on Israel to end its blockade of the enclave.
