An explosive device went off in the northern Gaza Strip on Monday, as two Palestinians were attempting to plant the bomb near the border with Israel , the IDF Spokesman's Office said on Monday.

The IDF denied Palestinian claims that soldiers opened fire during the incident, killing a 22-year-old Palestinian man.

Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported that the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine's military wing claimed the man was a member of their group on a "jihad mission." They claimed that the man, Ahmad al-Azameh, was killed by IDF fire.
