The IDF shot at Palestinians in Gaza near the Erez crossing on Sunday, the IDF Spokespersons office said.
The Palestinians were protesting and throwing rocks, prompting the IDF to shoot at them, hitting one man in the foot.
According to Israel Radio, they were protesting Israel's blockade of Gaza and the slow rehabilitation of the strip after damage incurred during the summer's Operation Protective Edge.
, two Palestinians approached the Gaza-Israel border fence. One of them climbed over the fence, ignoring calls by the IDF to stop.
Soldiers fired on the man's legs, striking and injuring him.
