A Palestinian boy died Saturday of his wounds sustained close to the border with Israel in the southern Gaza Strip a day ago, medics said.

Jamal Afana, 15, was critically wounded in his head by Israeli gunfire east of Rafah town on Friday, Ashraf al-Qedra, spokesman of the health ministry in Gaza, said in a short text message to reporters.

Israeli soldiers also shot dead a 40-year-old man and wounded around 1,000 Palestinians on Friday, with 13 of them critically injured, Al-Qedra said.

The death toll of Palestinians has climbed to 49 with more than 8,000 injured since March 30, the first day of the six-week anti-Israel mass protests, known as the “Great March of Return” rally. Enditem
