IDF Forces Fire at PA Residents Gathering near Erez Crossing

Israeli soldiers opened fire at an assembly of over 100 Palestinian Authority (PA) Residents who had gathered at the Erez border crossing situated at the northern tip of Gaza.

A spokesperson for the IDF announced that the shots were fire after the Arabs did not listen to the soldiers’ instructions to distance themselves from the area, within which loitering is prohibited. No soldiers were wounded.

A source from within the PA claims that 2 of the gatherers were wounded by the fire and were transported to a hospital in Gaza.
