Israeli Defense Forces' aircraft opened fire Wednesday night on an armed Palestinian near the border fence in the northern Gaza Strip, says a statement from IDF spokesperson.
The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed it found a body east of Gaza city, saying the man died in the Israeli airstrike.
In a seperate statement on Thursday, the PA Health Ministry reported of three fisherman wounded from live fire by IDF off the coast of Gaza.
Additionally, the ministry reported of a 34-year-old resident of Rafiah had succumbed to a headshot wound he suffered last Friday during the protest, raising the rally's death toll up to 20.
On Wednesday, as has been the case throughout this week, some of the young male protesters came up to the border fence and drew Israeli fire. The Red Crescent said two people were lightly wounded in the legs by live bullets when they and dozens of other young men approached the border near Nahal Oz.
