A Palestinian man injured by Israeli army fire during a protest along the Gaza Strip's border with Israel died on Saturday, medical workers said, DPA reported.

The 21-year-old was injured during a protest along the border fence on Friday when Israeli soldiers opened fire at protesters.

Israeli media quoted a military spokesman as saying soldiers opened fire after protesters tried to damage the fence and ignored warnings to move away.

Israel and the Islamist group Hamas ruling Gaza agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire on November 21 that ended eight days of fighting.
