Israel combatant killed by 'friendly fire'
An Israeli has been killed by his own forces in a boundary incident in which 3 Palestinians unlawfully crossing the border from Gaza were under arrest. The Israeli military said the Palestinians were without arms & thought to be looking for job when they were stopped.

A 2nd Israeli military unit arrived & started fire, mistaking the 1st unit for the Palestinian thinks. Worries have raised in the area despite US efforts to renew stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

The soldier killed was an associate of a tank crew who had left their vehicle to come near the Gaza border near Kissufim to keep in custody the Palestinians. A guard from another unit arrived on the spot & started fire by mistake. The investigation is going on.
