STORYLINE:

Palestinian protesters continued to clash with Israeli soldiers in the early hours of Friday morning at the Qalandia checkpoint, near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The clashes erupted after thousands of Palestinians marched to the checkpoint to protest against Israeli military action in Gaza.

At least one Palestinian was killed and dozens were injured in the clashes, a Palestinian doctor said.

Fighting was fierce across Gaza on Thursday, and at least 119 Palestinians were killed, making it the bloodiest day of the 17-day war.

That raised the overall Palestinian death toll to at least 803, according to Gaza health officials.

Israel has lost 32 soldiers, all since 17 July, when it widened its air campaign into a full-scale ground war.

Two Israeli civilians and a Thai worker in Israel have also been killed by rocket or mortar fire.
