Israel has declared wide areas in Gaza near the border with Israel as "no-go zones". Soldiers are allowed to fire at anybody entering them, including Palestinian farmers.

B'Tselem field researcher Muhammad Sabah documented a demonstration against this policy held by young Gazans. The footage shows unarmed demonstrators standing several dozen meters from the border, facing a military outpost inside Israel. A soldier stands by the outpost, observing the events. A shot is then heard. A young Palestinian man was wounded from the shot and died that evening.
