The soldiers were stationed on towers in Nahal Oz and Malka military bases, across the border fence.

On Friday, three Palestinians were shot with live Israeli army fire after the soldiers targeted them in a Palestinian land, east of the Sheja’eyya neighborhood. They were moved to the Shifa hospital, west of Gaza city, suffering moderate wounds.
