Israeli fire killed a Palestinian during clashes on the Gaza Strip border Tuesday, Gaza medics said, in the latest unrest to erupt in the coastal enclave.

Ahmed al-Serhi, 27, was killed along the strip's eastern border with Israel, while five others were wounded.

Violent protests in the occupied east Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank that began around the start of the month have also spread to Gaza, which suffered three Israeli offensives since 2008.

The current wave of protests and repression started in late July when 18-month old toddler Ali Dawabsha was burned to death and three other Palestinians severely injured after their house in the occupied West Bank was set on fire by Israeli settlers.

The parents of the toddler, Riham and Saad, and their other son Ahmad later lost their lives after suffering serious injuries in the arson attack.

Palestinians have been protesting repeated Israeli and illegal Jewish settler attacks on Al-Aqsa mosque and closing the Muslim holy site on a number of occasions to worshippers.
