GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- One Palestinian was killed and 14 others were injured on late Sunday as Israeli forces attempted to suppress protests in the besieged Gaza Strip.

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.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli forces opened live fire towards hundreds of Palestinian protesters who arrived to the eastern borders of Gaza to participate in calling an end to the nearly 12-year siege imposed by Israel.

Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes carried out two airstrikes also in central Gaza, targeting a group of Palestinian youths and injuring several of them.

The medical condition of the youths remained unknown.

For the past week, hundreds of Palestinian protesters, have been organizing, as well as participating in night protests, during which they set tires on fire and chant slogans through loud speakers, while marching towards the border with Israel. These protesters are also known as the "Night Confusion" unit.
