Israel has warned that it would use excessive force against any attempt of infiltration from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

In central Gaza, protesters gathered east of the Bureij refugee camp.

A Palestinian source quoted by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz said that the victims appeared to be members of Hamas.

A 32-year-old man wearing a camouflage hat with his face masked, a traditional keffiyeh scarf around his neck, said they hoped to fly around 50 kites. Reuters reported that about 80 people were shot and injured from live fire.

Palestinian protesters try to pull down the fence of the border after they burn tires during a protest at Gaza's border with Israel.

The soldiers also fired gas bombs at two ambulances east of Khuza'a, east of Khan Younis in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, casing damage.

The Israeli Army has faced criticism over using live fire against the protesters and in its defence, it said the action was being taken only when the protesters reached the limits.

The group said in a statement that the four died during "preparations", without giving further details.

The move has deeply angered the Palestinians, who see the Israeli-annexed eastern sector of the city as the capital of their future state.
