Numbers were down from the previous Friday, when tens of thousands approached the border in demonstrations that saw Israeli forces kill 19 Palestinians, making it the bloodiest day in Gaza since a 2014 war.

In a statement read out outside Downing Street, Corbyn said: "The killing and wounding of yet more unarmed Palestinian protesters yesterday [Friday] by Israeli forces in Gaza is an outrage".

But rights groups have harshly criticised Israeli soldiers' actions, and Palestinians say protesters are being shot while posing no threat to troops.

There have been no reported Israeli casualties.

Israel said around 20,000 people took part in the protests and that they were seeking to breach the border.

Corbyn said he stood in "solidarity" with Israelis who took to the streets to protest their government's actions and added: "The silence from global powers with the responsibility of bringing a just settlement of the Israel-Palestine conflict must end".

Two of those killed were children under the age of 18: Hussein Muhammad Adnan Madi, 13, shot in the stomach with live fire east of Gaza City, and Alaa al-Din Yahya Ismail al-Zamli, 15, fatally wounded east of Rafah.

"Pay gap figures are depressingly unsurprising", says Women in Games' Isaaman
This in itself further proves the point that women are not rising to the higher-paying roles men do in the industry. Across the companies and organisations that had filed by 5pm on Wednesday, eight out of 10 had a gender pay gap .

Thousands of Palestinians continued "The Great March of Return", the week-long protest on Friday, demanding the right of return of Palestinian refugees to towns and villages from which their families were driven out when Israel was created.

Israeli forces have killed 31 Palestinians in Gaza, including 27 during protests, since 30 March - which Palestinians mark annually as Land Day.

In a statement on Saturday, the Palestinian ministry said 79 injured Palestinians were in a serious condition.

The killings of demonstrators, including one journalist, elicited criticism from the United Nations, EU and elsewhere.

"The IDF will not allow any harm of the security infrastructure or the security fence that protects Israeli civilians, and will act against the violent rioters and terrorists who attempt to do so", it added.

Having failed to condemn Israel's premeditated slaughter last week, the European Union put out a statement Thursday night urging Palestinians to "avoid any incitement to violence" and to "remain strictly nonviolent", even though not a single Israeli has been reported injured as a result of the protests.
