At least 204 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza since March 30, when Palestinians in the Gaza Strip began holding nearly daily protests near the buffer zone.

Tamer Abu Ermanah, 27, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers east of the town of Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, he said.

Israel said its troops had shot and killed a group of Gazans who broke through the fence with a bomb and attacked an army post.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, of the IDF Spokesperson's Unit, said 20 terrorists entered Israel through a hole in the border fence created by an improvised explosive device.

On Friday, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman announced suspending fuel delivery to Gaza in response to the protests, Haaretz reported.

It happened during protests along Gaza's border.

The P.A., controlled by the Fatah Party, is engaged in a long-standing rivalry with the Hamas, which controls Gaza and has slashed salaries to public servants in Gaza by as much as 30 percent.

Israeli soldiers have killed more than 200 Palestinians in the clashes, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, with thousands of others injured. Most of the Palestinians were killed during border demonstrations, though others died in air strikes and tank shelling.

On Thursday, the IDF arrested a 19-year old Palestinian suspected of committing a stabbing attack that moderately wounded two Israelis outside an army base in the West Bank earlier the same day.

Since March, Hamas has orchestrated near-weekly protests along the fence, pressing for an end to a stifling Israel-Egyptian blockade imposed since the militant group wrested control of Gaza in 2007. They also seek the right to return to lands that Palestinians fled or were driven from upon Israel's founding in 1948.

But thousands of protestors again gathered Friday in sites along the border, AFP correspondents said.

Israel's army said approximately 14,000 "rioters and demonstrators" took part in Friday's protests.

They added that Hamas leader Ismail Haniya also attended the protests east of Gaza City and hailed the ongoing demonstrations.
