IDF troops killed a Palestinian near Beit Lahia in the Gaza Strip and
wounded four others, Palestinian sources said Monday afternoon.
The sources said the people fired upon may have been farmers.
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.
