"Among the targets that were attacked were two sites used to manufacture and store weapons and a military compound", the Israeli army said. Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Palestinians had fired the rockets in response to the killing of 21-year-old Razzan Najjar.

Doctors from Gaza's Health Ministry on June 1, 2018 say tear gas used by Israeli forces reportedly contains unknown chemicals that cause side effects such as hysteria burning of the face and nervous breakdowns.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Rocket alerts sounded in Israeli towns and villages near the border after dark, sending residents rushing to shelters.

Dr. Rasha Abdul-Rahman Qdeih said she was with Razan when they were trying to help wounded Palestinians, but five army jeeps came close to the fence, before two soldiers left one of the vehicles and pointed their sniper scopes at them.

More than 100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces amid protests in support of the declared right of Palestinian refugees to return to their ancestral homes in what is now Israel.

During a press conference held at the Chinese Embassy in Cairo on Thursday, Gong, who is now visiting Egypt, said his country is looking forward to increased coordination and cooperation with Cairo on Palestine and the peace process.

The weekend launches were the first since Israel struck scores of sites in Gaza last week in retaliation for a barrage of rockets and missiles fired from the territory.

"The terrorist group Hamas bears primary responsibility for the bad living conditions in Gaza", Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said ahead of the vote.

The United Nations envoy for the Middle East, Nickolay Mladenov, said in a tweet that "Israel needs to calibrate its use of force and Hamas need to prevent incidents at the fence".

Competing UN Security Council proposals to respond to the escalation of Israel's use of force in Gaza both failed on Friday, starkly baring divisions that have paralysed the UN's most powerful body. Najjar was also photographed wearing a white coat during attempts to resuscitate her.
