A Palestinian baby girl died as a result of inhaling tear gas during clashes along the occupied Gaza border, the health ministry in the enclave announced Tuesday.
Eight-month-old Leila al-Ghandour was exposed to the gas east of Gaza City during major protests on Monday, in which the health ministry said 58 Palestinians were martyred most of them by sniper fire.
It was not immediately clear how close to the barbed wire Ghandour and her family were.
At least five protests sites have been established since demonstrations began on March 30, most of them with both frontline areas and places for families further back.
Monday's protests were against the opening of the US embassy in the holy occupied city of al-Quds, which had angered Palestinians.
Tens of thousands of Palestinians rallied near the border fence, with smaller numbers seeking to breach it.
"Israeli" occupation forces on the border used tear gas and sniper fire on the crowds.
