So far, the military did not issue a statement on the incident.

Israel Radio reported that the man was a member of the Popular Resistance Committees.

The incident comes after nearly two weeks of quiet on the Gaza front. In the last fire exchange, soldiers wounded three terrorists near the Gaza border.

The IDF opens fire on Palestinians who come within a certain distance of the border fence, after repeated attempts by terrorists to plant explosives along the fence, aimed at hurting Israeli patrols.
