A Palestinian teenager was killed by Israeli forces during demonstrations along Gaza’s northern border with Israel.

Ahmed Abu Habel, 15, succumbed to a head wound after being hit with a tear gas canister fired by Israeli soldiers near a checkpoint between Israel and the besieged enclave.

Twenty-four others were injured, the spokesperson for Gaza’s health ministry, Ashraf al-Qidra, said.

Israel’s military did not comment on the specific incident but a spokeswoman told AFP that soldiers had “fired live rounds in accordance with the rules of engagement” as protesters massed along the border.
