Two Palestinians were killed in clashes on the Gaza border on Friday-an 18-year-old youth and a 14-year-old teen, the grandson of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's sister. He was hit with a bullet in the neck.

According to an Interior Ministry release published on Saturday, Knops said the Gaza Strip and occupied West Bank would be added to the list of territories that the Dutch civil registry accepts.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin also commented on the developments on Saturday evening, saying, "W$3 e send our prayers of consolation to the Ansbacher family and to the whole community of Tekoa for the shining light that has been extinguished by a vile hand, and for the great void that Ori - good hearted and generous of spirit - leaves behind".

An Israeli military spokesman said troops had faced off on Friday with more than 6,000 Palestinians, some of whom threw rocks and "a number of explosive devices, which exploded on the Gaza side of the fence". The Israeli troops responded with barrages of tear gas and live fire.

The only options previously available to Palestinians in the Netherlands were "Israel" and "unknown" - the latter addad as an option in 2014 because Palestinians had protested against putting Israel as their place of birth. The Israeli army noted that only the "barbed wire" and "brave IDF soldiers" managed to thwart Palestinian infiltration.

However, changes made to the Qatari grant-with the funds transferred through the United Nations rather than directly to Hamas-and the terror group's violations of the quiet have led to the resumption of violence on the border.

Israel and Egypt imposed a security blockade on the enclave after Hamas seized control of it in 2007, which the World Bank says has reduced the local economy to a state of collapse.

Earlier this week, Israel began reinforcing its Gaza security fence with a galvanized steel barrier 65 kilometers long (40 miles) and six meters high (20 feet).
