GAZA CITY (Ma'an) --
FEB. 23, 2019 10:58 A.M. (UPDATED: FEB. 23, 2019 3:22 P.M.)

Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian minor and injured at least 41 other Palestinians, on Friday afternoon, as they suppressed weekly protests in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that 15-year-old Youssef Said Hussein al-Dayeh was shot in the chest with a live bullet, during protests in eastern Gaza City, before being pronounced dead shortly after.

Israeli forces suppressed Palestinian protesters who gathered at several return camps alongside the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip, injuring more than 41 protesters.

Palestinian youths ignited tires on fire to block the vision of Israeli soldiers deployed at the border fence, while others were able to cut through parts of the fence in eastern Gaza City and Khan Younis.

A Palestinian youth was injured with a tear-gas canister in the neck in eastern Khan Younis.

"The Great March of Return" protests were launched on March 30th by thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza -- which has suffered from a decade-long Israeli siege -- who took to the borders to demand their right of return as refugees to their original homelands, now in present-day Israel.

A 15-year-old Palestinian boy was shot in the chest and killed by Israeli live fire on Friday in protests at the border separating the Gaza Strip from Israel, the Gaza Health Ministry said. Twenty-three others were wounded by live fire, the ministry said.

The ministry had earlier reported a 12-year-old had been killed, before correcting its announcement to say he had been critically wounded, and then finally declaring that the boy, Youssef Said Hussein al-Dayeh, was 15 and had died of his wounds.

Friday's demonstration was the 48th in a row since the weekly protests began in March.

Earlier Friday, hundreds of Palestinians broke into Bab al-Rahma on Friday, a large structure at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City that has been at the center of reignited tensions in recent days.

The police arrested 60 East Jerusalem residents in their homes on Thursday night on suspicions of incitement and rioting ahead of the Friday prayers at the Temple Mount.

On Tuesday, the military attacked a Hamas outpost Wednesday in response to the first airborne firebomb fired from the Gaza Strip since November.

In recent weeks, several thousands of Palestinians participated in the Gaza fence protests and a few dozen have been wounded every week.

According to data in a United Nations report released last month and confirmed by Israeli security officials, 295 Palestinians were killed and about 6,000 wounded by live ammunition since the demonstrations' inception.

Last week, the Gaza Health Ministry reported that 20 Palestinians were wounded by live fire in the protests, while Israel Police said a Border Police officer was lightly wounded in the leg from shrapnel after an explosive device was thrown at him.

The week before that, two teenagers, aged 14 and 18, were killed and seven other Palestinians wounded by live fire during protests at the fence, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. The 14-year-old was named as Hassan Shalabi, the son of a niece of Ismail Haniyeh, the political chief of Hamas.

Earlier that week, the Health Ministry said that Ahmed Abu Jabal, 30, succumbed to bullet wounds sustained on the Gaza border the previous week.
