Egyptian mediators have been working to restore calm, and hope to bring about national reconciliation between Hamas, which seized Gaza by force in 2007, and the West Bank-based administration of President Mahmoud Abbas.

Egypt and United Nations officials have been seeking a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip, with Qatar providing humanitarian assistance, AFP said.

The children were killed for allegedly attempting to sabotage the border fence and being involved in placing an improvised explosive device adjacent to it.

The Gaza Strip faces a severe electricity shortage, high unemployment and lack of clean water, among other humanitarian concerns.

In a statement delivered in Egypt, the leader of the terrorist group, Yahiya Sinwar, said his organization expects Israel to transfer the money next Thursday, according to a report by the television channel Hadashot.

The deaths a day earlier of the teens - ages 13 to 15 - threaten to plunge the area into further violence after a brief exchange of fire over the weekend.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet of Ministers is meeting to discuss the situation in Gaza as well as Egypt's efforts for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.

Both groups praised Egyptian and United Nations efforts to broker a deal.

A Palestinian has died two days after suffering gunshot wounds during protests on the Israel-Gaza border, the health ministry in the besieged enclave said on Sunday.

Israeli snipers have also maimed hundreds by aiming at their lower limbs in a bid to incapacitate them, according to rights groups.

At least 218 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in the months of demonstrations and clashes.

Demonstrators are calling for Palestinian refugees to be allowed to return to the homes their families fled or were expelled from in the 1948 war surrounding the creation of Israel and which are now inside the Jewish state.

In the latest on Friday and into Saturday, Palestinian militants fired dozens of rockets into southern Israel, which responded with extensive air strikes.
