The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that Palestinian, Imad Daoud Eshteiwi, 21, was killed by Israeli live ammunition, east of Gaza City.

The ministry also confirmed that Israeli forces opened fire and injured 14 Palestinians east of the return camps in central Gaza.

According to reports, one of the injured is in critical condition.
