Israeli Troops Kill Palestinian

Officials say that a 20-year-old Palestinian was killed and nine others wounded after a clashing with Israeli soldiers on Thursday in the southeast Gaza Strip. Gaza’s leadership claims that the agreement includes a promise by Israel to halt “incursions” into the buffer zone along Gaza’s northern and eastern borders where Palestinians have previously not been allowed. The Palestinian News Agency said that a group of perhaps as many as 300 Palestinians went to a border area to pray and ended up throwing stones at soldiers, who responded with gunfire. An Israeli military spokesman said only that there were demonstrations on the Gaza side and that Israeli forcers fired warning shots, but that no incursion occurred. The Hamas prime minister in Gaza has repeatedly urged gunmen to respect the ceasefire.
