IDF forces shot and inured a Palestinian youth who failed to heed to warnings to back down at the Erez crossing with Gaza on Tuesday as dozens of protesters from the coastal enclave gathered in the area.

An IDF spokeswoman said the soldiers called on the youth to retreat before firing warning shots and finally reverting to shooting him in the leg.
