According to the Palestinian health ministry, he was shot dead shortly after another man nearby was killed in similar circumstances. He was taken to al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, but they were unable to save his life.
After Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, there have been endless protests in Gaza, the West Bank and across the world.
Hamas and Hezbollah have called for a third intifida, or uprising, against the Israeli state, and it remains to be seen whether these latest protests will descend into an intifida.
