The army claimed that the soldiers noticed the Palestinian allegedly trying to cross the border fence, ordered him to stop, and shot him dead after he failed to heed to their demands.
The army further claimed that the Palestinian youth carried what was described as a “suspicious object”, and that he was “in an area where Palestinian fighters had previously laid explosives”.
Israel Ynet News reported that several soldiers arrived

at the scene and launched an investigation into the incident.
The Ynet added that Israeli Army Engineering Corps also arrived at the scene to determine whether the Palestinian carried explosives, but did not reveal any further information, except that the Air Force was also called to the scene.
