Fifteen Palestinians were killed and scores more were wounded, as tens of thousands of Gazans marched on Israel's border fence on Friday.

Israel has since said that 10 of those killed were active members of Hamas' armed wing and two other militant groups, while Hamas has acknowledged that five of the dead were members of its armed wing.
