Hamas has called for a new Palestinian uprising like the "intifadas" of 1987-1993 and 2000-2005, which together saw thousands of Palestinians and more than 1,000 Israelis killed.
More than 300 people were injured across the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem on Friday, 50 of whom needed hospital treatment, the Palestinian Authority's Ministry of Health said.
Large demonstrations also took place in Jordan, Tunisia, Somalia, Yemen, Malaysia and Indonesia, and hundreds protested outside the USA embassy in Berlin.
As per local media reports, 400,000 plus protestors filled the streets in Gaza today, as Hamas reportedly fired two rockets at Israeli settlements.
The Iron Dome anti-missile defense system intercepted a rocket headed straight for a populated area in the Gaza Belt region in southern Israel on Friday night after terrorists launched another attack against civilians across the border.
The Israeli military said it had responded to rocket fire by striking four facilities belonging to Hamas in the Gaza Strip: two weapons manufacturing sites, a weapons warehouse, and a military compound.
In one of them, a rocket hit the southern Israeli city of Sderot although Israeli public radio said it did not explode and did not cause any casualties.
