An Israeli Special Forces officer shot during confrontations with Palestinians along the Perimetre Fence with the besieged Gaza Strip nine days ago has died of his wounds.
Barel Hadaria Shmueli was part of a Border Police Special Unit operating during confrontations on the sidelines of a Palestinian demonstration against the Israeli blockade on Gaza near the Perimetre Fence separating the Hamas-run enclave and Israel.
A Police statement says during an operational activity on the border fence of the Northern Gaza Strip on August 21, the force came under fire from the Strip and Barel was critically wounded.
According to the statement after over a week during which Barel fought for his life along with the staff at Soroko Hospital in Southern Israeli City of Beersheba, he was pronounced dead.
Gaza Ministry of Health said that a total of forty-one Palestinians were wounded in the protest that weekend.
