More Violence Hundreds of Palestinians Wounded At Gaza Israel Border Protest
"Two suspects tried to cross the border into Israel and damage the security fence in the southern [Gaza] Strip". One was killed, the other was injured and is being questioned by Israeli security forces.
"In response, IDF (army) troops fired towards them".
The forces opened fire at farmers while they were working in their farms near the border fence east of Gaza.
The Palestinians who staged this assault are no mere protesters.
The Israeli military had no immediate information on the incident.
The breaches came amid heightened tensions in the Gaza Strip, following weeks of demonstrations, clashes and numerous infiltrations, by both armed and unarmed Palestinian suspects.
Hamas says the protests are aimed at breaking a crippling border blockade that was imposed by Israel and Egypt after the Islamic militant group overran Gaza in 2007.
"This is yet another terrorist action", the IDF said, accusing Hamas of "taking [such actions] in an attempt to infiltrate into Israeli territory and hurt Israel's citizens".

Both the leaders are also looking forward to setting aside the bitterness of the past to forge a new relationship. They recognised terrorism as common threat and committed to cooperate further on counter terrorism.
This takes the total number of the Palestinians killed by the Israeli fire to 45 since the march began on March 30.
"It does not have operational solutions, so it is cynically using Palestinian citizens to create provocations and to grab the attention of the global community", the former IDF southern commander told the Jerusalem Post Conference in NY.
Khalil al-Hayya, deputy head of Hamas in Gaza, told a separate news conference that the suspects "wanted to kill reconciliation". Tawfiq Abu Naim, said that the attack was beneficial to the enemies of Hamas, hinting at the possible involvement of Israeli intelligence and radicals associated with the Islamic state. He said an exception was Friday, when soldiers opened fire at a large crowd that attempted to break through the border fence, killing three people.
Since late March, thousands have demonstrated near the border every Friday, some throwing stones or burning tires. They were arrested and found to have knives and wire cutters on their persons, the military said.
