IDF: Troops Fired at Person Approaching Gaza Fence

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Agence France Presse, Friday, that troops fired at someone approaching the Gaza security fence during the morning hours. The spokeswoman added, "They believed he was attempting to plant an explosive charge."

A Gaza health spokesman said a 22-year-old man was seriously wounded by Israeli tank fire near the El-Bourej section of central Gaza. Last week an Israeli soldier was serious injured in an attack near central Gaza.
