BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was shot and critically injured by Israeli forces in the central Gaza Strip.

Medical sources said he was shot in the chest and taken to a hospital.

The Israeli army said it opened fire at Palestinians who approached the fence and were suspected of attempting to plant an explosive device.

Hours earlier, Israeli forces fired multiple mortar shells at southern Gaza, locals and Israel's army said.

Witnesses said that tanks fired at least three shells east of Rafah that targeted the abandoned Yasser Arafat airport.

No injuries were reported.

An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed that Israeli forces used mortar fire in the southern Gaza Strip in response to two mortar shells fired from Gaza.

The mortars landed in the Eshkol regional council with no injuries reported.
