Tensions escalated at a protest near the Gaza-Israel border Friday, Gaza Health Ministry officials said, killing two Palestinians and wounding more than 300 more. One of the people killed was a medic who suffered a gunshot wound, and 85 other people were wounded by gunfire. Israel and Islamist militant group Hamas had agreed to a ceasefire, but Israel's military later fired at protesters after Palestinians threw a grenade at Israeli defense forces. Thousands of protesters continue to gather at the border, with the IDF saying that roughly 9,000 demonstrators were present.
