Israeli troops shot and killed three Palestinians who tried to breach the Gaza border fence, the military said, adding that an axe and a wire cutter were found in their possession.Gaza's Hamas rulers have said the marches would continue until a decade-old blockade of the territory by Israel and Egypt is lifted.Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were expelled from what is now Israel, and the border protests are also billed as a "Great March of Return".Rights groups say the army's open-fire orders, under which troops are permitted to shoot at those approaching the border fence, are unlawful.The statement was unclear about whether the Palestinians managed to get into Israel.Earlier Sunday, thousands led by Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh joined a Gaza funeral procession for six members of the Hamas military wing who were killed in an explosion a day earlier.
