GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip
A Palestinian health official says a man has been killed and three others wounded by Israeli gunfire in the Gaza Strip.
It wasn't immediately clear what sparked the shooting that killed Hamad, or why Israeli forces opened fire on the bird hunters. The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
Israel often fires warning shots to disperse Palestinians who approach its border.
Such shootings have been rare since Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers fought an eight-day battle last year.
