The Palestinian Health Ministry said a 29-year-old Gaza man has died of injuries from Israeli army fire during last week’s mass protests along the Gaza border with Israel.
Separately, Israeli defense authorities confirmed that Israel is holding the bodies of two alleged Hamas members.
With Monday’s death, this would raise to 18 the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops on Friday. Hamas said Friday’s mass march was the first in six weeks of protests against a decade-old border blockade.
Rights groups say shooting Palestinians who don’t pose a threat to soldiers’ lives is unlawful.
