A Palestinian teenager has died after being shot by Israeli forces last month during protests and clashes along the Gaza border, the health ministry in the enclave said.

Saheeb Abu Kashef, 16, died late Saturday after being shot on August 3 east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, according to the ministry.

At least 180 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed since protests and clashes erupted along the border on March 30.

Also on Sunday, an Israeli stabbed by a Palestinian near the entrance to a mall in the occupied West Bank died from his wounds, the hospital treating him said.

No details were immediately provided on the identity of the man, whose death was confirmed in a statement from Jerusalem's Shaare Zedek medical centre.

Israeli media reported that he was 40.
