PPS said the Israel Prison Service (IPS) attempted to break Haroub and Awawi's hunger strike by moving them from one prison to another, in hope of causing fatigue and deterioration in their health.

Israel said last Friday that it would also lift the ban it had imposed on Palestinian fishing vessels operating in the strip.

The oil-rich Persian Gulf country stepped up its financial support to Gaza a year ago in order to defuse tensions that have mounted and, in several cases, erupted into cross-border fighting, after Hamas launched weekly protests along the Gaza-Israel perimeter fence.

Moreover, the tragic death of 195 Palestinians - including 14 students from UNRWA schools and the long-lasting physical and psychological injuries of 29,000 people during the year-long demonstrations known as the Great March of Return - come after three devastating conflicts in Gaza since 2009, which resulted in at least 3790 deaths and more than 17,000 injuries combined.

The Israeli military claimed that Gaza ruled by Hamas and jihadi elements has fired around 600 rockets and other projectiles in southern Israeli cities, adding that, in retaliation, it targetted more than 250 targets belonging to Gaza militants.

Gazans have held weekly rallies since March 2018, primarily to draw worldwide attention to the dire living conditions.

The event was timed to coincide with a day commemorating the Nakba or "catastrophe" which led to the exodus of several hundred thousand Palestinians following declaration of the State of Israel on 15 May 1948.

A small counter-protest was held by pro-Israel activists, according to the U.K. Campaign Against Anti-Semitism.

Former IDF chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot, right, is interviewed by Amos Yadlin at the Institute for National Security Studies annual conference in Tel Aviv, on January 27, 2019. Rights organizations condemn the blockade as a punishment for Gaza's 2 million residents. The UN has said that the territory will become unlivable by 2020.
