November 26, 2012 15:40

IDF troops shot and killed a Gaza man after he broke into a house in the southern border community of Sde Avraham and stabbed a resident of the home on Monday morning.

The IDF spokesperson's office said that while the army and the police are still investigating the incident, they believe it is more likely that it was an attempted terror attack and not solely a botched robbery. Still, they added that a simple robbery has not been ruled out yet.

The army would not confirm if the man's body had been returned to Gaza or if he is known to be a member of any armed organization.
