The planned protests seem to be the last hope for Hamas to try to break a border blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt in 2007, when the group seized Gaza from Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

On the first day of the Great Return March (31 March) 16 Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded as Israeli forces claimed the protesters were rioting.

"We continue to believe in the need for a win-win agreement that can benefit Israel, the worldwide community and people needing asylum and we hope that Israel will reconsider its decision soon", spokesman William Spindler said.

In the run-up to the protests last week, Israel deployed thousands of troops along the fraught border, vowing to use deadly force against anyone who threatened Israel's "security infrastructure".

The killing continued on Tuesday when a Palestinian from Deir Al Balah, in the center of the Gaza Strip, was shot dead during a demonstrations held in the eastern area of the Bureij refugee camp.

The attack came on the 42nd Land Day in which Palestinians commemorate the 1976 protest over the confiscation of Palestinian land by the Israelis. Life in Gaza has become increasingly harsh after more than a decade of closures, with residents enduring daily power outages lasting hours.
