An Arab terrorist attempted to cross the border fence on Tuesday, according to 0404, from Gaza near Kibbutz Zikim.

IDF forces were forced to shoot at the infiltrator after he ignored calls to halt. 

The terrorist is injured and was transferred to hospital for treatment. He is currently in moderate condition at Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon. 

An IDF spokesperson confirmed to the news site that soldiers shot in the air before wounding the terrorist, as is IDF protocol when confronted by a threat.
