IDF forces shot a Palestinian man who entered a forbidden security zone on the Gaza-Israel fence, an army spokesperson said Saturday evening. The man subsequently died of his injuries.

Soldiers spotted the man acting suspiciously near the fence, and asked him to leave the area. When he refused, soldiers fired warning shots in the air, the spokesperson said. The suspect refused to leave, and was then struck by gunfire.

The incident occurred on the border between southern Gaza and Israel.
