Israeli forces fired toward the two Palestinians, killing one of them, the army said.
A Palestinian security source said a group of Palestinian youth had tried to go through the security fence in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip
Israeli forces opened fire on the youth, killing one of them, the source said on condition of anonymity because he was unauthorized to speak to media.
