PA: A Shepherd was Killed in Gaza

PA sources in Gaza claimed on Thursday evening that a 22-year-old Arab shepherd was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers in the northern Gaza Strip. The sources also said that three boys were injured and that one is in serious condition.

A spokesman for Gaza's medical services said that the four youths were collecting gravel near the border when they were shot.

The IDF said in response that in two incidents in northern Gaza, IDF soldiers fired at two Arabs who were approaching the fence in what was deemed a suspicious manner. When they ignored the soldiers' calls to leave, the IDF soldiers fired shot at them.
