A Palestinian shot in clashes with Israeli occupation forces on the Gaza border succumbed to his wounds Thursday, the health ministry in the Hamas-run strip said.

Ahmed al-Assi, 21, was shot east of Khan Yunis on June 8, a ministry statement said.

It said he was wounded in the head and had been in critical condition.

Since major border protests broke out on March 30, at least 130 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire.

No Israelis have been killed.

Palestinians are calling to return to the homes their families fled from in 1948 during the war surrounding the creation of Israel.

Israel says any such return would mean the end of it as a Jewish state.
