GAZA CITY, PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES: Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian woman during protests along the Gaza border Friday, the health ministry in the Hamas-run enclave said.
Spokesperson Ashraf al-Qudra said the woman was shot in the head east of Gaza City.
Qudra named her as Amal al-Taramsi, 43, saying she was the third woman to die in months of clashes that have seen at least 241 Palestinians killed.
At least 25 other Palestinians received gunshot wounds, al-Qudra said in a statement.
In June, a female Palestinian medical volunteer was shot dead in border clashes.
Protests have calmed in recent months amid an informal truce between Israel and Hamas.
