Palestinian killed near Israel-Gaza fence

Israeli troops shot three Palestinians advancing towards the border fence around the Gaza Strip Saturday, killing one and lightly injuring the other two, the army said.

 

The soldiers said they fired after repeated calls for the Palestinians to stop went unheeded, the army said. Soldiers then called the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza to send an ambulance to evacuate the body of the Palestinian who had been shot. The other two men were for questioning, the army said. (AP)
