Health ministry: 2 injured by Israeli gunfire near Rafah

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two people were shot by Israeli forces east of Rafah on Monday, a health ministry spokesman said, in the second consecutive day of shooting along Gaza's border.

Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an that two men were moderately wounded after being shot near the Kerem Shalom crossing. They were taken to the Abu Yousef Hospital.

An Israeli military spokesman said several "rioters" tried to damage the fence along the border and failed to respond to warning shots fired by soldiers.

Several Palestinians tried to cross the border, and Israeli soldiers fired at their legs, the army spokesman told Ma'an.

The latest shooting is the fourth such incident since Wednesday's ceasefire between Hamas and Israel.

On Sunday, a man was lightly injured by Israeli gunfire near Khan Younis and on Friday soldiers shot dead a 20-year-old man near Gaza's southern border.

Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man east of Khan Younis on Thursday after he had approached the fence with a group of people carrying flags and celebrating the end of the conflict as Palestinians rallied for a second day.
