An IDF force operating along the northern Gaza border shot a Palestinian man who approached the border fence Saturday evening.

The IDF said it first fired warning shots into the air but targeted the unarmed man's lower body when he failed to heed several warnings. Palestinian media reported the man in his thirties was taken to a hospital in nearby Beit Hanoun in moderate condition.
