Addressing the unrest, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman decided to cut Qatari fuel shipments into the Gaza Strip in response to the mass protests.
"Israel will not put up with the situation in which, on the one hand, fuel tank trucks can access Gaza, and on the other, terror and violence are carried out against the Army and the citizens of Israel," the statement of the Defense Ministry read.
On Friday, thousands of Gazans staged demonstrations on the border with Israel.
