Israel fired live rounds of live ammunition in the Gaza Strip early Saturday morning, a day after an Israeli air raid killed a Palestinian woman in the Palestinian coastal enclave.
The attack in Gaza City came a day ahead of the start of the Palestinian-Israeli summit in Jerusalem.
The Israeli military said in a statement that it fired two live rounds into the southern Gaza Strip after Palestinian militants fired three projectiles from Gaza.
It said one of the projectiles struck a “vehicle.”
The second projectile, which hit a car, struck a Palestinian security officer.
The military said the Palestinian was killed and the injured were taken to hospitals in the area.
Earlier in the day, the military said it fired live bullets in the northern Gaza Strip, where at least six Palestinians were killed and at least 20 wounded.
It said in its statement that a Palestinian militant opened fire on a group of Israeli soldiers and two of their vehicles.
The army said in the statement that the soldiers opened fire to protect themselves, but the militant opened an explosive device, causing a fire that damaged two military vehicles.
The military said one soldier was lightly wounded.
A group of five Israeli soldiers were injured by an improvised explosive device that went off near a military vehicle, the army said.
In the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, four Palestinian protesters were shot dead by Israeli troops and two other protesters were wounded, Israeli media reported.
The protesters were protesting the recent escalation of Israeli operations in the occupied West Bank.
