Gaza protest organizers moved sit-in tents closer to the Israeli border fence Thursday, a day before a fourth planned mass demonstration, raising fears of more bloodshed.The protests, largely led by Gaza's Hamas rulers, began March 30 . "We will cross the border," said Daoud Shehab, a member of the organizing committee from the smaller Islamic Jihad group, adding that Israel "should feel really jittery as a result of these marches".Israeli military officials have warned that they will not tolerate a mass border breach or permit protesters to get close to the fence. In the past three weeks, Israeli troops firing from across the border fence have killed 28 protesters and wounded more than 1,500, according to Gaza health officials.In the camp near Gaza City, activists flew two kites Thursday.
