‘Israeli’ occupation forces shot dead a Palestinian teen near the Gaza border on Friday, the health ministry in Gaza said.

Fahd al-Astal, 16, was martyred after being shot in the stomach east of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, with four other Palestinians wounded, the ministry added.

Weekly border protests along the ‘Israeli’-occupied frontier were officially cancelled Friday.

But residents said a small number of mostly young Palestinians still approached the border fence.

The ‘Israeli’ occupation army said it was looking into the incident.

At least 348 Palestinians have been killed by Zionist fire in Gaza since weekly protests began in March 2018, more than half during demonstrations.

Others were martyred by airstrikes or tank fire.

The protests are calling for the ‘Israeli’ apartheid regime to ease its blockade of the Strip and for Palestinians to be allowed to return to their ancestral homes now inside the ‘Israeli’-occupied territories.
