IDF soldiers shot at and injured two Palestinians approaching the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday.

Military sources said the Palestinians were intending on damaging the fence. The soldiers fired shots toward the legs of the Palestinians after firing warning shots, according to the IDF Spokesman's Unit. A source also said that the soldiers had fired tear gas towards the Palestinians prior to using live fire at their lower bodies.

Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported that two Palestinians were shot in the feet, citing medics in Gaza.

"The IDF won't tolerate any attempt to damage the security fence or to harm Israeli civilians," the IDF Spokesman's Unit said.
