In a separate incident along the Gaza Strip frontier, a Palestinian man was reportedly killed during clashes with the Israeli Defence Forces. Al Watan Voice, a Palestinian news outlet, identified the deceased man as 22-year-old Hani Rafiq Wahdan.
Israeli forces used live rounds, rubber bullets and teargas to disperse hundreds of demonstrators, injuring 28 people, including an Anadolu Agency (AA) staff member, local sources said.
Vahdan died when he received a gunshot wound to his head, as AA staffer Fati al-Katati was injured due to a bullet piece that hit his knee.
At least 134 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces, while 19 Israelis have been killed since October 1.
Incidents of violence between Israelis and Palestinians have increased since Israeli police carried out a raid at the Al Aqsa Mosque compound, one of the holiest sites in both Islam and Judaism.
Palestinians say the recent violence is the result of frustration from nearly half-a-century of occupation and they accuse Israel of using excessive force to suppress the unrest, while Israel says violence has been caused by a Palestinian campaign of lies and provocation surrounding the Al Aqsa Mosque.
