GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian medical teams on Saturday morning evacuated the body of a man killed a day earlier in the Gaza Strip near the northern border with Israel.

Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said the body would be transferred to Kamal Udwan hospital in Jabaliya, after emergency teams coordinated with Israel to retrieve the body.

The man, who was not identified, was found dead near the Bedouin village by Beit Hanoun, close to Israel's Erez crossing.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said a gunman had approached the border on Friday afternoon and opened fire on Israeli forces. Soldier returned fire and identified a direct hit, she said.

Also on Friday, Israeli forces shot dead a man trying to enter Israel from the Sinai border with Egypt, and wounded another person. Both were later found to be unarmed, a military spokeswoman said. Israeli media reported that the pair were residents of the Gaza Strip.
