TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian teenager in Gaza early Saturday, medical officials and the army said.

The body of Ibrahim Mohammad Faraj, 17, from the An-Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, was transferred to the Al-Aqsa Hospital, medics said.

A military spokeswoman told Ma'an that forces opened fire when the teenager crawled toward a border fence overnight.

On Friday, Israeli forces shot and injured a protester in southern Gaza.
