Israeli army kills Palestinian on Gaza border


Israeli troops have killed a Palestinian who crossed in from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, saying he was a security threat though he proved to be unarmed, military sources said.

The man, who was not immediately identified, had first drawn soldiers' suspicions by digging into the ground on the Gazan side of the fortified border fence, an army spokeswoman said.

He then clambered over the fence, carrying an item that the troops could not see clearly, she said. They shot him dead on Saturday after he ignored their calls to turn back as well as warnings shots.

The army spokeswoman did not give further details on what the Palestinian was carrying. An Israeli military source said, however, that no weapons were found on him. more
