IDF soldiers killed a Palestinian in a clash along the Gaza-Israel border Tuesday morning. The Al-Aksa Martyrs' Brigades, a terrorist group affiliated with President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement, announced that one of its men was killed in the clash, and that another was wounded. Abu Khassan, an Al-Aksa commander, said that the group's gunmen detonated a bomb when an Israeli patrol passed by, blowing a hole in the border fence. One gunman was killed by the IDF when he crossed the fence into Israel, Abu Khassan said. The IDF reported that soldiers along the border spotted two Palestinian militants planting a bomb along the fence and opened fire and that one of the Palestinians was killed in the exchange of fire. In a separate incident Tuesday morning along the border with northern Gaza, the IDF shot and wounded two Palestinians who approached the fence. The soldiers fired at their legs when the Palestinians did not heed calls to leave the area, the IDF said.
