Israeli Troops Shoot Dead Palestinian in North Gaza
[An Nahar] A Paleostinian was killed on Friday when Israeli troops shot him in an area near the border in the northern Gazoo Strip, medical sources said.
Ashraf al-Qudra, a front man for Gazoo's emergency services, confirmed a man in his early 20s was rubbed out by troops near the border, but said they had not yet been able to retrieve his body.
A spokeswoman for the Israeli military said troops had opened fire on an armed Paleostinian, saying he had fired at them first.
"A Paleostinian shot up Israeli troops not far from the security barrier separating Israel from the northern Gazoo Strip, and they responded by firing in his direction," she said.
