IDF tank fire killed a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Wendesday near the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza. The army confirmed that it fired at two suspects approaching the border fence and hit one of them.

Palestinian sources said the man who was killed was Jihad Sobhi Afaneh, 20, and the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, the al-Quds Brigades, said he was a member of the group.

Earlier Wednesday, a mortar shell was fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip, and exploded in an open field in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council. No injuries or damage were reported.
