Israel is threatening more action against Palestinians protesting along the Gaza border.
Security forces shot dead 17 Palestinians on Friday as they marked Land Day - an annual rally against Israeli occupation.
More than 1,400 protesters were injured; half of them had gunshot wounds.
It was the single worst day of violence in Gaza since the 2014 war between Hamas and Israel.
Israeli security forces have confirmed they used drones to spray tear gas on protesters.
