Nahed Qudih, a 17-year-old high school student, said he has nothing to lose by joining his peers in the seemingly futile and risky act of running toward armed soldiers who fire from behind a fence, some perched on high earthen berms providing cover.
It added that Israel Defense Forces (IDF) operations against "terrorists" will not allow "any harm to the security of Israeli civilians".
It is unclear what kind of aircraft or how many were dispatched for the operation.
Arab ambassadors urged the United Nations secretary-general Thursday to launch an independent investigation into the killing of 18 Palestinians during a protest march last week against a stifling decade-old Israeli blockade of Gaza.
Israel said it acted judiciously to prevent a risky breach of its borders and sovereignty led by Hamas, the Islamic militant group that controls Gaza, and to protect nearby communities.
As part of the framework, Israel said it would rehabilitate and develop affected neighbourhoods in south Tel Aviv, while also resettling African migrants elsewhere in the country.
"Approaching the Gaza perimeter fence is not an offense punishable by death or serious injury, to be executed immediately via shooting from a distance", Hagai El-Ad, the rights group's director, wrote.

Itamar Marcus, director of the Palestinian Media Watch, told CBN News Hamas wants people to be killed. Two other blockade-busting strategies war with Israel and reconciliation with Abbas have failed. The people of Gaza are suffering from an enormous humanitarian crisis and now, when they tried to protest against it, they were met with brutal force which killed 16 of them and injured and maimed many others.
Thousands are expected to rally along the border again on Friday. The Palestinians demand this right not only for those of the hundreds of thousands of refugees who are still alive - a figure estimated in the low tens of thousands - but also for their descendants, who number in the millions.
Electricity is on for four hours a day and water in many areas of Gaza is undrinkable. But they have stopped short of specifically threatening a mass breach of the border fence.
