GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories - A 19-year-old Palestinian shot by Israeli occupation forces during protests along the Gaza border last week died from his wounds on Thursday, the health ministry in the Palestinian enclave said.

The death of Anas Abu Aser brings the toll of Palestinians killed by Israeli fire since protests and clashes along the Gaza border began on March 30 to 49, with hundreds of others wounded by gunfire.

Palestinians say protesters are being shot while posing no threat to soldiers.

Two days ago, the Israeli army refused to disclose the rules of engagement regarding the orders to open fire given to soldiers facing the unarmed demonstrators in Gaza.




According to Palestinian rights organisation al-Haq, at least 26 journalists have been injured by Israeli forces while covering the demonstrations, as rights groups have denounced the targeting of reporters and paramedics.

Each Friday, Gazans have taken to protesting at the border with Israel, following US President Donald Trump's decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem, effectively establishing Jerusalem as an Israeli capital.

The Israeli army's use of live fire during the protests has drawn global criticism and calls for an independent probe - which Israel has rejected.

Abbas also stressed that the Palestinian side was and is ready to cooperate for the success of any global effort aimed at coming up with a political process based on United Nations resolutions and the principle of the two-state solution for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital based on the 1967 borders.
