The Palestinian envoy rejected Israeli and United States claims that the measure was biased: "If anything, the draft did not go far enough in addressing the nightmare the Palestinian people are living", Ambassador Riyad Mansour said.

The council has been deadlocked for weeks over how to respond to the violence in the Gaza Strip - even as a United Nations envoy warned this week that the crisis could escalate into all-out war.

The UN's Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) also said it was "deeply concerned" and called for the protection of medical workers. "Reports suggest that she was shot about 100 metres from the fence".

A statement from Gaza's Health Ministry mourned Najar as a "martyr".

At least 116 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in Gaza border protests since March 30.

Israel's Iron Done defense system intercepted some and others landed inside Gaza.

Militants from Hamas and Islamic Jihad fired dozens of rockets and mortar shells at southern Israel throughout Tuesday and overnight into Wednesday, to which Israel responded with tank fire and airstrikes on more than 50 targets in the small, coastal enclave.

The U.N. Security Council has gone into a closed-door discussion about a proposed resolution on seeking ways to ensure "international protection" for Palestinian civilians - and an alternative proposal to condemn Hamas over recent violence in Gaza. It said it struck a total of 10 targets, including weapons manufacturing and storage sites.

Meanwhile, in the West Bank, the Israeli military said its troops shot dead a Palestinian who tried to ram a tractor into its forces.

In a statement, the Israeli military said it would investigate her death. In response, the troops fired towards the terrorist, killing him.

Amid the rising tensions with Gaza, the Israeli military is conducting a multi-day exercise in southern Israel.

More than 120 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers using live ammunition on protesters. Israel says most were attackers.

Palestinian political analyst Walid al-Mudalal said the USA veto gives Israel immunity against prosecution for killing scores of protesters along the Gaza border.
