Israeli media announced the death of the soldier who was seriously wounded about a week ago on the Gaza Strip border. They had reported on Sunday that the condition of the soldier deteriorated rapidly and became very critical.

After the Israeli soldier was injured, Walla reported, a few days ago, ongoing construction work carried out by bulldozers to make changes to the separation fence with the Gaza Strip, in order to create a new obstacle that makes it difficult for Palestinians to get anywhere near the Israeli soldiers.

On August 21, the Israeli occupation forces fired bullets and tear gas canisters at Palestinians near the separation fence during their participation in the "Seif al-Quds" festival marking the 52nd anniversary of the burning of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Multiple injuries were reported after the occupation forces opened fire on the demonstrators, including children, one of whom was the 12-year-old Palestinian Omar Hassan Abu al-Nil who died after succumbing to the injuries he sustained last week. In response to the Israeli attack, the Palestinian demonstrators set rubber tires on fire near the separation fence east of Malaka Camp, with some of them climbing the fence, raising the Palestinian flag, and throwing stones at the occupation forces.

During these attacks, the Palestinians tried to seize the weapon of an Israeli sniper through a small hole in the concrete wall that the soldier was using as a firing position. Then, a Palestinian resistance member with a pistol ran up to the small hole and fired a number of shots through it at the Israeli soldier from point-blank range.

A few days ago, Israeli media attacked Prime Minister Naftali Bennett for forgetting the name of the soldier shot by the Palestinian resistance member in Gaza in an incident that went viral on social media two days ago.
