Mladenov had "gone beyond his role" in seeking agreements between Israel and rival Palestinian faction Hamas, which controls Gaza, he said, adding that his actions impacted "Palestinian national security and the unity of our people".

The ministry said four were killed in one location, where the Israeli military said it opened fire on a crowed of Palestinians who breached the fence and approached an army post.

Israeli security personnel have been deployed in large numbers around the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar, sources said.

On Friday, a bomb was detonated along the fence and a number of Gazans entered into Israel, according to IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, who tweeted "some 20 terrorists crossed through the hole created by the IED, about 5 assaulted the IDF position and were repelled".

A middle-aged Palestinian woman has been stoned to death by Israeli settlers in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, reports say. His name was Mohamed Abbas.

On Monday night roughly 7,000 Palestinian Arabs provoked Israeli troops by attacking them with burning tires, rocks and firebombs while dozens of boats tried to break through Israel's naval blockade, Arutz 7 reported.

"After the Palestinians said "no" to Israel and "no" to the Americans, they are now saying "no" to the UN as well", Israel's ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon said in a statement.

The order was issued by Israeli minister of military affairs Avigdor Lieberman.

Israel accuses the enclave's rulers Hamas of leading the protests and using them as a cover for attacks.

Critics of the tactic describe it as collective punishment to Palestinians.

Israel suspended fuel deliveries to Gaza on Friday in response to border violence which the Hamas-run health ministry said left seven Palestinians dead in the coastal enclave. Most of the Palestinians were killed during border demonstrations, though others died in air strikes and tank shelling. He gave the order following intense clashes between Israeli soldiers and anti-occupation protesters.
