Palestinian dies of border protest wounds: ministry
"Mohammed Ghassan Abu Daqqa died... on Wednesday evening from his wounds, after he was shot by the Israeli occupation east of Khan Yunis on May 14," the ministry said.
It described him as a "young man" but did not give his precise age.
No Israelis have been killed.
The protests peaked on May 14 when at least 62 Palestinians were killed as thousands approached the heavily guarded border fence on the same day the United States moved its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Israel says its use of live fire is necessary to defend its borders and stop infiltrations. It accuses Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas of seeking to use the protests as cover for attacks.(AFP) AMS
