The death came a day after two Palestinians were killed in clashes near the Rafah refugee camp in the southern Gaza Strip. The deaths happened when IDF soldiers arrested a local Palestinian resident, Bassem Abu Libdeh, who is suspected of smuggling weapons across the Egyptian border. One man was shot and killed by a helicopter backing up the IDF ground forces, and a second was killed as he tried to flee the area. Libdeh’s house was destroyed by the IDF after his detention (MEED 14:10:03).
