A 12-year-old Palestinian boy who was shot in the head by Israeli fire during a demonstration at the Gaza-Israeli border last week died of his wounds Saturday.

Iran PressMiddle East: Gaza health officials said that Hassan Abu al-Neil was shot on Aug. 21 during the demonstration to protest the crippling blockade imposed by the Israeli regime.

Violence erupted when Israeli forces opened fire on the Palestinian demonstrators, wounding over 40 Palestinians, including al-Neil.

Another Palestinian man died from his wounds Wednesday.

An Israeli soldier remains in critical condition after being shot in the head from point-blank range by a protestor during the clashes.

Palestinians also planned another border protest Saturday night in an attempt to maintain pressure on Israel to ease the blockade.

Following Wednesday’s protest, Israel said it was easing some of the commercial restrictions on Gaza, allowing vehicles, goods, and equipment for rebuilding projects to enter the Palestinian enclave.
