Israeli soldiers shot and killed a 20-year-old Palestinian man who approached a fence near Gaza's border with Israel, medics said on Monday.
Palestinian medics said the victim, Ahmad al-Nabaheen, was unarmed and mentally unfit.
An Israeli military spokesperson confirmed the Sunday evening shooting, saying troops opened warning shots when a man walking in a riverbed failed to heed orders to leave the buffer area.
Medics said the Israeli army refused to allow Palestinian ambulances to the scene on Sunday. Al-Nabaheen died of potentially treatable injuries, they added.
His body was recovered on Monday morning.
On Friday, a Palestinian man was seriously wounded after Israeli artillery fired several shells in the same border area. The army said it had suspected he was planting an explosive device, but no explosion ensued
