"Our thoughts are with the families of the victims", Mogherini said in a statement a day after the clashes, which also left hundreds wounded. The Israeli military deployed more than 100 snipers, who shot 773 protesters with live ammunition. The kidnapping of corpses and ir subsequent exchange has always been used by both sides as a bargaining chip. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for an "independent and transparent investigation" and reaffirmed "the readiness" of the world body to revitalise peace efforts.

In Friday's confrontations, large crowds gathered near the fence, with smaller groups of protesters rushing forward, throwing stones and burning tires. Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel pellets and tear gas wounding hundreds and killing 17. The army released videos showing soldiers with rifles perched on embankments overlooking the scene.

"Many people tell us that they don't know how they were injured, many were concerned over what happened to them", Ms Shalloot said. The military later deleted the tweet.

Protest organisers have said mass marches would continue until May 15, the 70th anniversary of Israel's creation.

Israel said 10 of the dead belonged to Hamas.

Earlier this month, Israeli parliament, Knesset, passed a law that allows Hebrew security forces to retain bodies of "Palestinian terrorists who died while conducting terrorist attacks", a practice on which Supreme Court Israeli had failed against it, three months ago, not having yet legal coverage.

Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005 but, citing security concerns, still tightly controls its land and sea borders.

The march coincided with Palestinian Land Day, an annual occasion marking Palestinians' protest against Israel's confiscation of their land.
