IDF soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian farmer in his fields along the Gaza-Israel border, a Palestinian official said Friday. The 30-year-old farmer was shot from an army position along the border fence, and another farmer, his cousin, was wounded, according to Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of the Gaza health ministry. The military said it had fired warning shots when a number of men had approached the security fence, and it was possible that the two had been hit. On Thursday, several Gaza terrorist groups announced they had fired mortar shells at Israel from the same area where the farmer was killed Friday, near the southern Gaza town of Khan Yunis.
