IDF Soldiers Fires at 2 PA Arabs Near Border Fence

IDF soldiers identified on Tuesday night two Palestinian Authority Arabs who were approaching the border fence near Gaza. The soldiers called on the Arabs to turn back and, when they failed to do so, fired a warning shot into the air.

The IDF said that following the warning shot, the troops fired towards the Arabs’ feet, wounding one of them. They then fled back to Gaza.

PA sources later claimed that the two were moderately wounded by the shooting.
