Hamas, the de facto governing authority in the Gaza strip, has orchestrated near-weekly protests along the border, pressing for an end to a stifling Israel-Egyptian blockade.

The P.A. has demanded an accord between Hamas and Fatah prior to any ceasefire agreement, and said that it is the only Palestinian body that can engage in negotiations.

Although the fuel was aimed at making the situation better in Gaza- where residents are now only receiving around four hours of electricity per day on average - the Qatar-bought delivery was protested by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, as it was arranged with Hamas rather than his government.

Israel said its troops had shot and killed a group who broke through the fence with a bomb and attacked an army post. The Bedouin village is said to be slated for demolition and Palestinian villagers have been protesting against the imminent move.

Israeli soldiers also shot and killed Afifi Mahmoud Afifi, 18, in eastern Gaza City, Qudra said.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said about 15,000 Palestinians gathered along fence.

Aisha Mohammed Talal al-Rabi, 47, was riding in a vehicle with her husband near the Za'tara roadblock, south of Nablus, in the northern part of the West Bank, when a group of Israeli settlers came onto the road and began throwing rocks at their auto.

A source at the Nablus hospital where Aisha al-Rawbi was brought said the 47-year-old was dead on arrival and that she had suffered a head injury. He says her husband saw a small group of settlers nearby.

According to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, police have opened an investigation into the death.

The area is near several ultranationalist Jewish settlements.

Tensions have been running high in the West Bank over the past week with two attacks against Israelis.

The Israeli military has been criticised by the Palestinians as well as several global human rights groups for its lethal response to the protests.

"Israel will not tolerate a situation in which fuel tankers are allowed to enter Gaza on the one hand, while terror and violence are used against [Israeli] soldiers and Israeli citizens on the other", said Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

On Friday, Israeli forces said they had arrested a Palestinian on suspicion of stabbing and wounding an army reservist on guard duty at a checkpoint south of Nablus the previous day.

"The rioters are burning tires and are hurling rocks, explosive devices, firebombs and grenades at IDF troops and the security fence", according to an IDF statement.
