Palestinian said killed by Israeli fire in Gaza border clashes

The Palestinian health ministry says a Palestinian protester has been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza border clashes over US embassy move.

The ministry also says that over 20 people have been injured in the clashes which began earlier today.

Several thousand have gathered near the border, while smaller numbers of stone-throwing Palestinians were approaching the fence, with Israeli troops positioned on the other side.

Gaza residents streamed to the border area for what is intended to be the largest protest yet against a decade-old blockade of the territory. Israel says it will stop a possible border breach at all costs, warning protesters that they are endangering their lives.
