The Israeli human rights group B’Tselem has released video footage showing an unarmed Palestinian protester in Gaza being shot by an Israeli soldier on Wednesday. Ahmad Sliman Salem Dib, 19, later died from wounds at Gaza City’s Shifaa Hospital. In video footage filmed by B’Tselem’s Gaza field research officer Muhammad Sabah, a group of Palestinian and foreign protesters can be seen walking from the al-Shaj’iya neighbourhood, east of Gaza, towards the double wire fence that separates Gaza from Israel. Israeli security forces have declared a 300-metre ”no-go” zone inside the fence.
