BEIT HANOUN, GAZA, October 1, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli soldiers opened fire Monday night and killed a Palestinian east of Beit Hanoun in the north of the Gaza Strip.
Medical sources at Kamal Udwan hospital in Beit Lahia said ambulances were able to retrieve the body of Hweishel Abu Hweishel, 36, from the Mughraqa area south of Gaza City, before midnight after it was possible to reach that area following heavy shooting and Israeli army operation in the area.
Reports said soldiers stationed at the borders north of Gaza opened fire at two Palestinians in Beit Hanoun claiming they came close to the fence Israel has built along its borders with the Gaza Strip. The army said it killed one person.
The soldiers also arrested another Palestinian who apparently was in the same area.
Israeli army earlier fired several shells at the same area, apparently as they suspected Palestinians were going to infiltrate the border.
