Palestinian medical and security sources reported on Sunday that one
resident was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers stationed at the Gaza
International Airport, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
The resident was identified as Mousa Abu Sneina, 30. He suffered several rounds of live ammunition and died instantly.
The army occupied the airport and used it as a military base four months ago after fighters of three factions carried a cross border raid and abducted the Israeli corporal Gilad Shalit on June 25. Two Israeli soldiers and two fighters were killed in the attack.
