The IDF shot dead a Palestinian gunman suspected of trying to plant explosives beneath a fence at the border with Gaza, the IDF Spokesman's Unit said on Sunday.

None of the terrorist groups in the Hamas Islamist-ruled Gaza Strip claimed responsibility for the incident, which Israel said occurred after dark on Saturday.

The tense frontier has been largely quiet since an Egyptian-brokered truce silenced a violent outbreak last month when Israel killed 25 Palestinians in air strikes launched at Gaza, most of them terrorists, and gunmen fired approximately 300 rockets at Israel.
