The Israeli statement came hours before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened his security cabinet to discuss, and possibly approve United Nations - and Egyptian-brokered ideas for preventing another threatened Gaza war.
Hamas, meanwhile, is desperate to end the blockade, which has made it increasingly hard for the group to govern and has led to growing hardships in Gaza.
An unnamed Israeli official said Sunday that there might be talks focusing on a proposal to ease the blockade of Gaza if the Palestinians calm their side of the fence that separates the occupied territories from the blockaded coastal sliver.
An Israeli Cabinet minister says a cease-fire deal with Hamas now being discussed involves easing some restrictions on Gaza.
"(A deal would bring about a) separation of Gaza from the rest of the homeland and would create a mini-state which will be the graveyard of our national project", said Munir Al-Ghaghoub, a spokesman for Abbas's Fatah movement.
Al-Ayyam said that according to emails obtained by the US-based Foreign Policy journal, Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor, seeks to push to close UNRWA and end the Palestinian refugee status. Two other IDF soldiers also died in the incident. Twenty-four of slain protesters were minors, the ministry has said.
