A Gaza teenager died of his wounds on Saturday after being shot by Israeli troops during protests along the border.

The health ministry in the Hamas-run Palestinian territory in a statement identified him as Mohmen al-Hams, 17. He was shot in the chest during protests near the southern Gaza town of Rafah on Friday.

Troops shot dead two other Palestinians during Friday’s protests.
