BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Friday shot a Palestinian man as he tried to cross into Israel from northern Gaza, Israel's army said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that two Palestinians approached the "security fence in the northern Gaza Strip" with the intention of crossing into Israel.

Israeli soldiers ordered them to stop and fired in the air and then at their legs when they failed to comply.

One man was hit, while both were detained at the scene and taken for questioning.
