    The UN has appealed for calm before the one-year anniversary of Palestinian protests along the border fence with Israel.

    The anniversary comes after a week of Israeli air raids in response to a rocket fired from Gaza that injured seven near Tel Aviv.

    Gaza's Ministry of Health has said that Israeli snipers have shot over 6,500 protesters, killing more than 250 - including children, journalists and medical workers.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Gaza City.
