The Israeli military says its soldiers have shot two Palestinians who tampered with the border fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip.
It was unclear if the Palestinians were militants or civilians.
Palestinian officials in Gaza had no immediate comment on the shooting incident, and there were no immediate reports of casualties.
Israel considers the Gaza Strip a hostile entity because the militant Islamic group Hamas rules there, and because militants in the seaside territory have carried out attacks on Israel.
