Pales­tinian killed try­ing to dam­age Gaza fence, Is­rael says

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Is­rael’s mil­i­tary says a Pales­tinian shot as he at­tempted to dam­age the Gaza border fence has died of his wounds.

It said he was evac­u­ated for med­i­cal care Sun­day and later suc­cumbed to his wounds. Ear­lier, it said three Pales­tini­ans armed with knives caught try­ing to cross the fence were de­tained for ques­tion­ing. There was no im­me­di­ate com­ment from Ha­mas, the Is­lamic mil­i­tant group that rules Gaza.

The Gaza border has been tense for months. Ha­mas has led weekly border protests since March 30 aimed in part at draw­ing at­ten­tion to the Is­raeli-Egyp­tian block­ade im­posed af­ter it took con­trol of the ter­ri­tory in 2007. – AP
