Security forces shoot at group attempting to place explosives near the border, wounding 22-year-old

(SOURCE)  A 22-year-old Palestinian was moderately injured Saturday morning when IDF troops fired on a group of Palestinians attempting to place explosives near the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip near Khan Younis.

The troops noticed the group moving closer to the border. Realizing they were carrying explosives and attempting to place them near the border, the troops shot at the Palestinians, wounding the 22-year-old in the leg.

 Palestinian sources claimed on Saturday afternoon that the Palestinians were actually farmers attempting to cultivate their fields in the vicinity of the border, according to Channel 10.

The incident marked the fourth Palestinian casualty in clashes with Israeli forces in as many days.

On Friday, one Palestinian was killed by IDF fire and five others were injured in scattered clashes along the Gaza border fence with Israel.

According to the IDF, Palestinian protesters gathered in the no-man’s-land next to the border fence and started tampering with it.
