GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Health officials say Israeli army fire has wounded 14 Palestinians in one of the calmer weekly protests along the Gaza-Israel perimeter fence.

Most of the few thousand Palestinian protesters kept a safe distance from the fence Friday, without burning tires or attempting to infiltrate the frontier.

But some hurled rocks and firebombs with slingshots, provoking Israeli fire, witnesses said.

Gaza's Hamas rulers deescalated the monthslong marches recently to allow mediators to negotiate a solution.

The Islamic militant group wants an end to an Israeli-Egyptian blockade.

In November, Israel permitted Qatar to deliver $15 million to help Hamas pay its civil servants and ease tensions.

Israeli fire has killed more than 170 Palestinians at the protests since they began in March. A Gaza militant shot dead an Israeli soldier in July.
