A Gaza man injured in violent clashes with Israeli troops over the weekend was pronounced dead Wednesday, the Hamas-run Health Ministry said. 

Osama Khaled Deaih, 32, was shot by Israeli forces on Saturday as hundreds of Palestinians gathered to protest the Israeli-Egyptian blockade on the Gaza Strip. After a group of protesters began climbing the border fencing as well as throwing rocks and explosives, the Israeli military said it used tear gas and live rounds on the crowd.
