A senior Hamas source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the leadership would meet in the evening in Gaza City to discuss a number of issues, including a possible agreement.

Members 'will discuss a number of important issues including proposals from Egypt and United Nations envoy Nickolay Mladenov concerning a truce and the lifting of the Israeli blockade imposed on Gaza, ' the source said.

According to the Times of Israel, Egypt hammered out a ceasefire agreement that will re-open the Rafah border crossing with Egypt as well as loosen restrictions on the Kerem Shalom border crossing with Israel.

The extent of Israel's control over swathes of occupied Gaza Strip, and systematic violence towards Palestinian civilians in unilaterally declared "no go" zones, has been detailed in a new report.

Israeli authorities began deporting several of the worldwide solidarity activists who were aboard the Al-Awda ship of the Freedom Flotilla, Gaza's National Committee for Breaking the Siege announced yesterday.

Israel on Thursday reimposed a blockade on fuel supplies to the enclave, in response to a resurgence of the flow of fire kites across the border.

"We continue with these marches until we achieve the demands of the Palestinian people and lift the siege of the Gaza Strip", protester Abdullah Jawdeh told Middle East Eye.

According to the Gaza health ministry, 157 Palestinians have been killed since the start of the "March of Return" protests on March 30.

The health ministry in Gaza said at least 50 people had been wounded throughout the day.

A second Palestinian protestor has died after being shot by Israeli troops during protests on the Gaza border on Friday. It said a tank fired at a Hamas military post in Gaza after Palestinians briefly crossed the frontier and threw bombs.

Israeli officials have been outraged by some demonstrators' use of kites and balloons set on fire, which they fly over the separation fence into Israel, claiming that the kites have sparked fires damaging some 7,000 acres of farmlands and forests.

With borders to both Egypt and Israel largely sealed in recent years, Gaza suffers from desperately high rates of poverty and unemployment. Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since 2008, the last of them in 2014.

Critics say it amounts to collective punishment of the coastal territory's two million residents.
