GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — A Palestinian hospital official says Israeli forces have shot and killed a man at the border fence with the Gaza Strip.
The official said the 23-year-old man died early Monday of wounds sustained earlier. He spoke anonymously because he wasn't authorized to speak to the media.
It wasn't immediately clear if the man was a civilian. The area is frequently used by militants to fire rockets at nearby Jewish communities, but sometimes others like the mentally disabled enter the area, not understanding its dangers.
An Israeli military spokeswoman says their forces shot the man after he ignored warning shots as he sneaked toward the border. She spoke anonymously citing military regulations.
Israeli forces and Palestinian militants have clashed occasionally in the past few months in the Gaza border region.
