A Palestinian man reportedly was shot dead by Israeli troops next to the Gaza security fence.

The Gaza Ministry of Health confirmed the death on Thursday of a 26-year-old man that the Israeli military said was tampering with the security fence. In the same incident, a 21-year-old man was shot in the foot.

Gaza officials said the men were collecting gravel near the fence, according to the Palestinian Maan news service.

Several explosive devices have been detonated near the fence in recent months in Palestinian attacks on Israeli soldiers patrolling the area.
