Gunfight breaks out on Gaza border

Monday, July 20, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

Israeli and Palestinian forces engaged in a brief but intense firefight along the Gaza Strip security fence late Sunday night. There were no casualties reported on either side.

The battle erupted after Palestinian terrorist gunmen fired an anti-tank missile at an Israeli patrol.

Earlier in the day, Israeli troops shot and wounded a Palestinian man after he ignored warnings to stop approaching the security fence in northern Gaza. Army officials said several warning shots were fired, but the man continued advancing, raising fears that he was a suicide bomber.

Israeli army medics treated the man and then moved him to an Israeli hospital.
