The IDF released a statement saying that the two men broke through an IDF checkpoint and soldiers shot at their car, after they had carried out the regular procedures.
According to the Palestinian reports, the two men were treated at a Hebron hospital.
The circumstances of the incident were still not clear.
On Saturday, Palestinian sources in Gaza reported one man was killed and
two were seriously injured due to an explosion east of Gaza city.
The injured were evacuated to Shifa Hospital in Gaza.
There were contradicting reports on the cause of the explosion.
Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported that a Hamas-affiliated website
said an Israeli drone fired on the men, which it also identified as
stone collectors. The website later changed its report saying the blast
was caused by an unexploded ordnance.
IDF officials denied involvement in the attack and estimated that the
blast was caused by an unsuccessful attempt to fire a rocket at Israel
which backfired causing the injuries.
