Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian man who approached the border fence.

The soldiers reportedly shot the man after firing warning shots and calling on him to leave the buffer zone between Israel and Gaza.

The man, 23, died of his injuries while waiting for paramedics to get permission to go to him and try to save him or evacuate him to a hospital. The Palestinian Ma'an news agency reported that the man died of injuries that likely would not have been fatal had he gotten immediate treatment.

Ma'an reported that the man was unarmed and mentally unfit.

A similar incident occurred a month ago.
