Gazans bury their dead after bloodiest day in years

Israel threatens to step up response amid Gaza violence

Other footage from Friday's demonstration showed live bullets being fired at protesters gathered near the border fence in Gaza, with local news reporting at least 14 people were killed and another 1,400 injured.

Nine demonstrators had been laid to rest in the Palestinian enclave on Friday. "The international community must not be deceived by Hamas's attempts to conceal their crimes", Danon said.

"Well done to our soldiers", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrote in a statement on Saturday.

It said el-Nabi - who appeared in the video - was an "active operative" of Hamas' militant wing.

One of the paradoxes of popular uprisings is that they often erupt when people lose hope and when political forces meet a dead end. "The fact that [Hamas] budgets such a sum for blatant terror activities says it all", he said.

Life in the coastal strip has deteriorated further in recent months, with rising unemployment, grinding poverty, and daily blackouts that last for hours.
