One man with a bullhorn shouted, "America is the biggest evil". Of 618 people wounded, 120 were from live fire, they said.

The army said in a statement its forces were using "riot dispersal means and are operating in accordance with the rules of engagement".

The army said it was taking action to disperse thousands of Palestinians, some of whom threw rocks the troops and burned tyres, and prevent any breach of the fortified frontier fence.

At the same time, Israel has faced fierce criticism over its use of lethal force against Palestinian protesters on the Gaza Strip border with the Jewish state.

More than 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled in the 1948 Mideast war over Israel's creation.

Around 2 million people live in Gaza, majority the stateless descendants of refugees from what is now Israel.

Rotem Kamer, head of the Israel Football Association, said Argentina cancelled the match because of pressure from Palestinians and the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement - which leads a global campaign against Israel, targeting the country's economy, art scene and sports.

And a source told People that Bourdain had a taxing work schedule as he filmed " Parts Unknown " in the months before his death. But concerns about his well-being escalated the next morning, when he didn't show up for his usual breakfast with Ripert.

"We don't have electricity or water or salaries", a woman demonstrator said.

Israeli firefighters try to extinguish the fire in a wheat field caused by a kite carrying Molotov cocktails released from the Gaza side of the border, in southern Israel, on May 31. Organizers say Israeli drones dropped incendiary materials on piles of old tires early Friday to make them unusable for the later protests.

The death toll from Israel's lethal measures against the Gaza protests have drawn worldwide censure, though the United States has placed the blame on Hamas. Israel said its troops were defending its border and accused Hamas of trying to carry out attacks under the cover of the protests.

Israel frequently accuses Iran of fueling weeks of Gaza protests by supporting the enclave's Islamist rulers, Hamas.

Israel and Egypt argue that they must maintain the blockade to contain Hamas and other militant groups, which have built up arsenals over the years, including short-range rockets.

Hamas seized Gaza from Western-backed Palestinian authorities in 2007 and has fought three wars with Israel there.

The day is also seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who officially declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day back in 1979.

Al-Quds day was observed throughout the country on Friday.

Rajoub, who had served time in Israeli prison for his involvement in terrorism, has a history of working to exclude Israel from global sports.

The eastern sector houses major shrines revered by Muslims, Christians and Jews.

Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque is the third holiest site in Islam after the Saudi Arabian cities of Mecca and Medina.

Palestinians have gathered along the Gaza-Israel border fence - for the 11th consecutive Friday - to participate in ongoing rallies against Israel's decades-long occupation.

It must be noted that Iran's first Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khomenei created Al-Quds Day as an annual event.
