Palestinian hospital officials said Israeli soldiers shot dead Ali Abu Shaweesh on Sunday in Khan Younis near the Jewish settlement of Neve Dekalim where stone-throwing clashes took place throughout the day. Three others were wounded, they added.
An Israeli army spokesman said Palestinians threw stones and petrol bombs at the fence separating Khan Younis from the Jewish settlements. When demonstrators tried to tear down the fence, soldiers fired low-calibre bullets at their legs, he said.
Under the truce, Palestinian police are supposed to stop such demonstrations, the spokesman said, adding that he did not know of any Palestinian being killed in the incident.
