An IDF force fired upon a Palestinian approaching the border fence in the central Gaza Strip on Sunday evening.

The IDF Spokesman's Unit said that the soldiers first fired warning shots into the air, and only shot at the mans body after he continued approaching the fence.



Palestinian medics said the soldiers killed the man, and the soldiers confirmed that they hit the suspect.

Palestinian medics said the victim was an unarmed, mentally unfit man and that they had to wait a couple of hours for permission to pick him up, early on Monday. They suspected he died of injuries for which he might have been treated.
