According to IOF sources, around 4am this morning (Friday), a man, presumably combatant, managed to cross the fence surrounding the Gaza strip into Israel near Kisufim. He then encountered a group of soldiers from the Golani battalion, shot in their direction, and then was killed in the ensuing gunfight. An IOF soldier was also killed in this incident.
Immediate, following this incident, Palestinian local sources are reporting IOF flyovers and shelling near Khan Younis. They are also reporting sounds of explosion and shooting near ‘Abassan, which borders with Egypt.
