Man Killed By Israeli Army in Gaza
The Israeli occupation army killed a man who entered the 300-meter 'buffer zone' in Gaza on Monday.
The army spokesperson claimed that troops opened fire aiming for the lower torso of the man. He later died from his injuries. It is unclear whether a warning was given. Israel enforces a 300m 'buffer zone' along the Gaza border, which is surrounded by a large wall. Palestinians who enter the 'buffer zone' risk being shot. Many Palestinians claim that they are shot at from over 500 meters away. The zone exists on Palestinian land – much of it confiscated from locals.
