The Ministry of Health said that Abdullah Abdulal, 24, was killed in the demonstrations, while 30 Palestinians, including four children and a medic, suffered bullet wounds, Palinfo reported.
Hundreds of Palestinians marched along the border between the Gaza Strip and the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories on the 58th Friday of the Great March of Return.
The Israeli occupation forces stationed behind the border fence heavily fired live ammunition and tear gas canisters at the peaceful protesters.
The Great March of Return was launched in late March 2018 in an effort to shed light on the Palestinian refugees' right of return and pressure Israel to lift the 13-year-long blockade on the Gaza Strip.
Since the start of the border protests, the Israeli occupation army has killed 313 Palestinians and injured over 31,000 in the Gaza Strip.
