GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teen was shot and injured by Israeli forces on Tuesday afternoon during clashes that erupted in east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the “buffer zone” of the central Gaza Strip.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza said in statement that a 17-year-old Palestinian boy was critically injured in the stomach with live ammunition.

Dozens of youths clashed with Israeli forces along the border line for the second day in a row, and set fire to tires as Israeli forces fired live ammunition at the crowd.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports.

On Monday, an unidentified Palestinian youth was shot by Israeli forces with live ammunition in the leg, during clashes in the same area near al-Bureij camp.

Clashes had erupted after Palestinians took to the border to protest in solidarity with some 1,300 Palestinian prisoners, who entered their 36th day of hunger strike on Monday.

The clashes came as Palestinians observed a general strike across the Palestinian territory in support of the mass hunger strike, and also to express opposition to US President Donald Trump who arrived in Israel on Monday for a two-day visit that will include a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank on Tuesday.
