The victim was identified by Palestinian sources on Sunday as Eid Abu Rubaiha, 55.

His body was handed over to Palestinian authorities after he was shot in a closed military zone about 15m from an Israeli army-manned border post, military sources said. 

The latest deaths raised to 4724 the number of people killed since the start of the Palestinian intifada or uprising in September 2000, including 3669 Palestinians and 981 Israelis.
