Hamas announced on Thursday it would pay $3,000 to the family of anyone killed in the ongoing Gaza border riots, $500 to Palestinians critically wounded and $200 to those who sustain more minor injuries.
Meanwhile, a Palestinian was killed on the border on Thursday and another died of wounds incurred several days ago, according to Palestinian health officials, bringing the number of dead in a week of violence to 19.
The Israeli military said one of its aircraft targeted an armed terrorist near the security fence along the border.
Tens of thousands of Palestinians began a six-week-long demonstration last Friday in tent encampments along the border of Gaza, an enclave of two million people ruled by the Islamist terrorist group Hamas.
The IDF said its troops have used live fire only against people trying to sabotage the border fence or rolling burning tires and throwing rocks.
Some of the dead were identified by Palestinian terrorist groups as members.
