Since March 30 Israeli troops have killed at least 120 Palestinians during mass demonstrations along the Gaza border, drawing global condemnation.

One Israeli army vehicle was sacked on, and Palestinians planted a grenade that exploded on the Israeli side of the fence, the military said.

"IDF troops arrived at the scene and opened fire, killing one of the terrorists", the army said. Militants in Gaza did not fire long-range rockets at Israel's major cities, as they did in 2014, and Israeli airstrikes were focused on unmanned military targets.

The spokesperson told MEE they were not aware of any Israeli injuries during the incident.

At least 122 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since March 30, the first day of the ongoing Palestinian "Great March of Return" rally against Israel's crippling blockade since 2007 and the U.S. embassy move to the disputed holy city of Jerusalem.

Last week, residents in Gaza attempted to break a 12-year crippling siege that has trapped more than two million Palestinians since 2006.

Israel withdrew its troops and settlers from Gaza in 2005, but citing security concerns, maintains tight control of its land and sea borders, which has reduced Gaza's economy to a state of collapse.

Israel has also been battling fires caused by kites rigged with incendiary devices, or attached to burning rags, launched by Palestinians in Gaza that have damaged forests and burned southern agricultural fields.
