"A short while ago, 2 suspects attempted to infiltrate Israel from the southern Gaza Strip and damage the security fence… IDF troops fired towards them. One of the suspects was killed," the IDF posted on Twitter Sunday.
Over the past month, Israeli soldiers have killed almost 50 Palestinians on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip, including most aggressive participants of mass demonstrations, dubbed the Great March of Return. The Israeli forces explain their actions by the need to protect the state border. The country's authorities have denied accusations of excessive use of force and ignored calls for an international investigation into what many see as bloodshed.
