Video: Israeli forces fire shots to disperse Palestinians

(Screenshot from the video posted by Russia Today)

A video posted online Friday by Russia Today shows a few dozen Palestinians who are gathered at the border fence while the Israeli forces warn them to move away from the fence. Warning shots are fired, multiple times, while the crowd disperses a few meters away and chants, "Allah-u-Akbar."

In a separate incident on Friday morning, Anwar Abdel Hadi Qdeih, a Palestinian man, was killed and 13 others were wounded after Israeli forces opened fire across the Gaza border. The Israeli military defended the shooting by saying that hundreds of Palestinians had attempted to breach the border fence, prompting the soldiers to shoot at them.
