A Palestinian was killed and others were injured Sunday by Israeli forces' gunfire in southern Gaza Strip, according to medical sources.

Local sources said that the Israeli forces fired an artillery shell and opened fire towards two Palestinians who were seen approaching the fence of the border between southern Gaza Strip town of Khan Younis and Israel.

Video footage showed an Israeli army bulldozer is pulling the body of the Palestinian who was shot dead.

Several young men in the area tried to pull the body back but failed due to the intense Israeli gunfire, according to the video.

Spokesperson for the Health Ministry in Gaza Ashraf al-Qedra said in a press statement that two others were injured in the legs and were hospitalized.

Meanwhile, Israeli army spokesperson Avichay Adraee said in a statement that Israeli troops saw Palestinians approaching the fence in southern Gaza Strip and planted explosive devices.

He added that the soldiers responded by opening fire.
