The Palestinian Authority health ministry announced on Wednesday, October 24, that a teenage protester had died after being shot by Israeli forces along the Gaza border the day before. According to Palestinian officials, at least three other people were wounded during Tuesday’s demonstrations. The teenager was reportedly shot in the village of Taamun in the West Bank. Further protests are likely along the Israel-Gaza border in the coming days and weeks.


Palestinian protesters have rallied at the Gaza border fence since March 30 in a Hamas-supported movement dubbed "The Great March of Return." Around 200 Palestinians and one Israeli soldier have been killed in border clashes since the protests began.


Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation and to avoid all protests and demonstrations due to the risk of violence. Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
