At least 120 Palestinian protesters, including dozens of members of local terror groups, have been killed during the so-far eight weeks of protests, according to Gaza officials.

A part of the investment to which the defense minister was referring apparently included the training of hundreds of sea commandos by the Hamas terrorist organization, which rules the Gaza Strip with an iron fist.

Its intended destination was not announced.

In the latest move, Israel's Defence Ministry said on Sunday that work had started on a maritime wall that would block infiltration by seaborne Palestinian fighters from north Gaza. It is due to be completed by the end of this year.

"This is a unique obstacle that will effectively prevent the possibility of penetrating Israel by sea", Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement.

Organizers said they would ramp up demonstrations on Tuesday with a flotilla of boats that would set off from Gaza in an attempt to break Israel's maritime blockade of the enclave.

Mass protests and clashes began on March 30 along the fence separating Gaza and Israel.

Low-level demonstrations along the border have continued since protests peaked on May 14, when at least 61 Palestinians were killed as tens of thousands of Gazans protested the U.S. transfer of its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The Israeli military aggression killed almost 2,200 Palestinians and injured over 11,100 others.

He also appealed to the global community to pressure Israel to lift the blockade on the Gaza Strip and on worldwide NGOs to provide protection to anti-siege ships.

He called on the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority to lift "penalties on the Gaza people to boost their steadfastness and ease the humanitarian crisis caused by the blockade".

Egypt has also kept its border with Gaza largely closed in recent years, but has opened it for the entire Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
