First Palestinian killed by Israeli fire since truce: Medics

Israeli forces shoot dead Palestinian on Gaza border, say Palestinian medics; Israeli spokeswoman says warning shots were fired due to 'disturbances'

AFP , Friday 23 Nov 2012

A Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli forces near the Gaza border on Friday, the first casualty since the two sides agreed a truce ending their week-long conflict, Palestinian medical sources said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman could not confirm the incident, saying only that "disturbances" had broken out on the Palestinian side of the Gaza border early on Friday, prompting Israeli soldiers to fire warning shots.
