The sources said the man was shot east of al-Maghazi refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip. Eyewitnesses said the victim was left bleeding on site for half an hour before a Palestinian ambulance could reach him.
The man was then evacuated to the al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah.
Medical sources said the man suffered from a gunshot wound to the leg.
Israeli sources said a military patrol came under fire during a “normal activity at the border.” No injuries were reported among Israeli soldiers.
Palestinians regularly face live fire from Israeli forces inside and close to the "buffer zone" along the border between Gaza and Israel. more
