Dozens of people have been killed during the weeklong protests in the Palestinian enclave of Gaza.
The Palestinians say they are protesting a border blockade of their territory by Israel that has gone on for a decade.
The protests are organized by Hamas, Gaza's ruling political party and militant group that Israel, the US, and the European Union have designated as a terrorist group.
The protests started with hundreds to thousands of Palestinians gathering at tent camps set up by organizers near the border with Israel. Palestinians have burned tires and pelted Israeli security personnel with rocks.
Israeli soldiers have also fired on the protesters with live rounds.
