IDF soldiers opened fire on a group of Palestinians IDF sources said were suspiciously approaching a patrol unit near the Karni crossing, Israel Radio reported Wednesday.

During a routine patrol, IDF soldiers spotted a vehicle driving towards their unit, and tried to flag them down.

The Palestinian driver did not appear to be slowing down or heeding the IDF command to self-identify, so soldiers fired into the air, according to the Israel Radio report.

The IDF suspects the Palestinians were attempting to lay roadside bombs along the border.

Earlier, Palestinian sources in Gaza said IDF soldiers shot at a number of Palestinians in an agricultural community in the area, near Beit Lahia, wounding at least seven people. Two of the casualties were in serious condition.
