IDF: 2 Gazans Came to Fence and Both Fled

Responding to Palestinian Authority reports that Israel Defense Forces fire killed a 26-year-old Gaza resident at the Gaza security fence, the IDF said, Thursday, that two Gaza residents came to the fence and began to damage it. Soldiers who saw the Arabs in the off-limits area started repeated efforts to make them leave the area, including shooting in the air.

When that did not work, the soldiers shot in the Arabs' direction, noting that both of them fled the scene. Arab sources say one of them was killed by the fire.
