A 15-year-old Palestinian boy succumbed on Saturday morning to wounds he sustained on the 19th Friday of "The Great March of Return" protests alongside the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip. It marked the first time all members of the political bureau got together in Gaza, Hamas has said.

Israel halted the entry of fuel and gas into the blockaded Gaza Strip on Thursday, according to Israeli media reports and Palestinian officials.

"A number of suspects infiltrated Israel from the southern Gaza Strip, hurled firebombs and an explosive device in the border fence area and then returned into the Gaza Strip". "We want to break the siege on Gaza once and forever", said Hussam Badran, one of the visiting Hamas leaders.

According to sources, the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu made a decision to postpone the trip to South America to monitor the situation in Gaza.
