Palestinian officials reported that a 21-year-old Palestinian man who was shot by the IDF near the border with Gaza on Friday died of his wounds. According to reports in the Strip, at least five others were injured by the army's gunfire in the incidents.
The reports said the youth took part in a rally near the border. The IDF said that the protesters were trying to breach the border fence, prompting the troops to follow arrest protocol before shooting towards one of the demonstrators' legs. (Elior Levy and news agencies)
