Israeli army expands incursion into Beit Hanoun, one killed
font size    

The Israeli army on Monday killed one Palestinian after it expanded an incursion into the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanoun in a bid to stop rocket fire at Israeli towns, medical sources and witnesses said.

Mohammad Al-Kafarna, a resident from Beit Hanoun, was shot dead by Israeli troops when he was standing in front of his house, witnesses said.

However, an Israeli army spokesman was quoted by Israel Radio as saying that the man was trying to fire a homemade rocket from the town at southern Israel.

One Palestinian was also moderately wounded, according to medical sources.

Israeli troops entered the border town of Beit Hanoun Saturday night in a second incursion in a week. Israel claimed that the incursion was part of a military campaign aimed at stopping Palestinian rocket fire into southern Israel.

The Israeli army has intensified military offensives against the Gaza Strip to rescue an abducted soldier.
