Israeli fire killed a Palestinian at the Gaza border Thursday, Reuters reports, and another died of wounds from several days ago, bringing the death count to 19 since last Friday.
The Israeli military said it used aircraft to target an armed militant near the border.
Palestinian protests began last Friday and will continue for six weeks at the Israeli-Gazan border. Troops were ordered to prevent any protesters from crossing into Israel.
Israeli anti-occupation group B’Tselem called Wednesday for troops to refuse orders to shoot at unarmed Palestinians.
