A Palestinian woman was killed in clashes with Israeli soldiers along the Gaza Strip border on Friday, according to Palestinian sources.
The Health Ministry in Gaza added that 25 additional Palestinians suffered gunshot wounds during the clashes.
The Israeli army estimated that some 12,000 Palestinians had gathered along various points on the border fence that divides Israel and Gaza.
An army spokesman said that the protesters burned tyres, as well as threw stones, explosives and grenades in the Israeli soldiers' direction.
Two people crossed the border fence and entered into Israel before soldiers shot at them and they returned to Gaza, the spokesman added.
Since late March, more than 240 Palestinians have been killed in protests along the Gaza border, according to the Health Ministry in Gaza.
The demonstrators are calling for a right of return for Palestinian refugees who fled the area that is today Israel. They also call for a lifting of the blockade on the coastal enclave.
