Israeli security forces shot dead a Palestinian man early on Thursday after he reportedly attempted to cross into Israel from Gaza, according to Israel’s army.
Hani Abu Salah exchanged fire with the soldiers, wounding three before he was shot and killed.

An Israeli tank targeted a Hamas military post after the incident which began at around 2:00 am, Israel’s military said.
Abu Salah’s death comes just over a year after that of his brother, Fadi, a disabled Palestinian activist who was killed by Israeli snipers during a protest last May.
