Since 2007, the Gaza Strip has groaned under a crippling Israeli blockade that continues to deprive its inhabitants of many essential commodities, including food, fuel, medicine and building materials.
Tensions have escalated since late March when Hamas launched what would become regular mass protests along Israel's perimeter fence with Gaza.
United Nations officials have called for the blockade to be lifted, citing deteriorating humanitarian conditions in the Palestinian enclave run by Islamist movement Hamas where 80 percent of the two million population are dependent on aid.
Another Palestinian, 25-year-old Ahmed Yaghi, was killed by a sniper east of Gaza City on Friday.
Hamas will not accept global aid in place of a substantial arrangement with Israel, an official from the group told i24NEWS Monday, after the group briefed Palestinian factions on ongoing talks with Egypt and the United Nations.
Without directly addressing Hamas, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas later released a statement cautioning "against the willingness of some to the American and Israeli plans which are aimed at turning the Palestinian issue from the cause of a people seeking freedom and independence and establishing their independent state into a humanitarian cause".
The Fatah movement had warned Hamas of the danger of a unilateral conclusion of the armistice agreement with Israel in exchange for easing the blockade imposed on the Gaza strip.
"(A deal would bring about a) separation of Gaza from the rest of the homeland and would create a mini-state which will be the graveyard of our national project", said Munir Al-Ghaghoub, a spokesman for Fatah.
But Egyptian officials have privately voiced worry about Israeli calls for them to be more involved in Gaza, proposals that they think may dovetail with the Trump administration's efforts to address Palestinian grievances with pan-Arab help.
According to medical sources, one of the wounded was a boy. Twenty-four of slain protesters were minors, the ministry has said.
