Yusef al Mahmoud, spokesperson for the Palestinian Authority (PA) said that Washington and London's opposition to the resolution "turns them into accomplices in the horrific massacre committed by the Israeli occupation army against our defenseless people", the Times of Israel reported.

Unarmed protester Fares al-Raqib, 29, who was shot Friday, succumbed to his wounds Monday, raising the Palestinian death toll to 18.

Hundreds of others were wounded, many of them by live fire, resulting in calls for an independent investigation by the European Union and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

The ministry has said 758 people were wounded by live fire on Friday - a figure disputed by Manelis, who said he believed several dozen Palestinians at most were wounded by live rounds and the rest by tear gas and rubber-coated steel pellets.

He said the Palestinian protesters are "members of Hamas" and that Israeli soldiers "prevented" activists linked to Hamas' military wing.

France on Sunday urged Israel to show restraint after clashes along the Gaza border turned violent on Friday, leading to the deaths of 16 Palestinians and injuring of thousands.

The Israeli army said its forces did not fire at anyone approaching the separation fence, but aimed at anyone who threatened its sovereignty and crossed the border. The military said some of those who were shot had fired at soldiers, rolled burning tires and hurled rocks and fire bombs toward the border.

"An army can use reasonable force to defend a border", said Omar Shakir, of Human Rights Watch.

Hamas continued to attempt to harm Israel via terrorism as well.

Fifteen Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire on the first day of what Hamas organisers said will be six weeks of daily protests against a border blockade.

"Israel will act firmly and decisively to protect its sovereignty and the security of its citizens", he said in reference to the attacks in which 15 Palestinians were martyred during demonstrations to mark Land Day.

The Israeli military accused Hamas of "cynically exploiting women and children" by sending them to the fence.

The Islamic Jihad militant group said in a statement that Raqib was a member, but that he was not carrying a weapon when he was shot.

Israel rejected the calls and repeated its decision not to launch an independent investigation into Friday's violence.

Hamas has been further weakened by global isolation and financial pressure by the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority, along with three wars against Israel. Life in the coastal strip has deteriorated further in recent months, with rising unemployment, grinding poverty and daily blackouts that last for hours. Israel said eight of the 15 belonged to Hamas, designated a terrorist group by Israel and the West, and two others came from other militant factions.
