IDF foils apparent infiltration attempt at Kerem Shalom on Gaza border

An apparent infiltration attempt at the Kerem Shalom crossing on the Gaza border was spotted and prevented by an IDF Bedouin battalion Thursday. Shots were reportedly fired at three Palestinian gunmen who moved into the Palestinian side of the crossing. One of the gunmen was apparently shot and killed, and one injured. The third gunman fled the scene, and is being pursued by IDF troops. The IDF believed that the men were trying to infiltrate the Israeli side of the crossing. Kerem Shalom is currently the main crossing used to transfer food and medical supplies to the Gaza Strip.
