13-year-old Ghazi Maher Ghazi al-Zaaneen died on Saturday of wounds by Israeli fire on the car he was in, Palestinian medical sources said.
They said Ghazi al-Zaaneen was seriously wounded on Friday night when Israeli soldiers fired shots towards a neighbourhood in the town.
Medical sources said the youth, heading east to farm family land, sustained critical wounds to the head after he came under fire by Israeli forces stationed east of Bait Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip. He was admitted to the intensive care unit at the Ash-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.
A military official, who declined to be named, claimed soldiers had fired "warning shots" in the Beit Hanoun area on Friday night after spotting Palestinians approaching Israel's border.
