Jerusalem: A 12-year-old Palestinian boy shot last week by Israeli soldiers during clashes along the border with Gaza has died of his injuries, the territory’s health ministry said Saturday.

Omar Hassan Abu al-Nile was hit during clashes last Saturday on the sidelines of a demonstration near the border fence separating the Gaza Strip, the official Palestinian news agency Wafa said.

He "succumbed to his injuries,” the Gaza’s health ministry said in a statement. – AFP
