Sept. 28, 2010 2:03 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 29, 2010 9:54 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian worker collecting stone aggregates near Gaza's northern border was injured Tuesday when Israeli forces stationed near the Erez crossing opened fire.

The worker said he was collecting rubble from an evacuated settlement before the incident.

Palestinian medical services official Adham Abu Silmiyya identified the victim as 21-year-old Fadi Tamboura from the northern Gaza Strip. The official said Tamboura was being treated for a gunshot wound to the right thigh at the Kamal Udwan Hospital in Jabalia

An Israeli military spokesman soldiers had identified a man approaching the border area, fired warning shots toward him, and when he did not retreat, soldiers aimed at the lower body of the man and "identified a direct hit."
