The Israeli military said that the teenager, Adnan Abu Khater, 16, was one of a group of people who approached the border fence and began “vandalizing” it on Thursday. A military spokeswoman said soldiers shot at the “lower extremities” of the “suspects” after they ignored warnings to move back.
Two more Palestinians were shot and wounded by Israeli forces near the border fence on Friday, according to Palestinian news reports, after protests broke out at Mr. Abu Khater’s funeral.
