GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A 32-year-old Palestinian was shot and killed on Sunday by Israeli forces east of Jabaliya refugee camp in the northern besieged Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army announced that its soldiers spotted a Palestinian approaching the security border fence and opened fire at him, causing him injuries and later detaining him.

The Israeli army added that the Palestinian succumbed to his injuries on the scene.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli forces opened fire at a Palestinian man, who was later identified as Ataf Saleh, 32, from the Jabaliya refugee camp.

According to reports, Israeli military vehicles then entered several meters near the return camps in the Gaza Strip and detained Saleh after seriously injuring him.

Israeli forces opened fire at anyone attempting to approach the border fence and prevented ambulances from reaching Saleh for more than half an hour, during which he succumbed to his injuries.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army said that three Palestinian youths were detained as they allegedly attempted to enter into Israel in central Gaza.
