Israeli killing of Gazan violates truce

Hamas says the killing of a Palestinian man in the northern Gaza Strip by Israeli forces constitutes “a violation of a ceasefire agreement” between the Palestinian resistance movement and Tel Aviv.  

On Sunday, the Israeli troops shot dead 32-year-old Palestinian farmer Fadel Mohammed Halawa in the northern Gaza Strip.
The bullet was apparently fired from an Israeli army watchtower near the man’s farm close to the occupied territories.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri denounced the killing later in the day, saying it is a "serious violation to the ceasefire agreement brokered by Egypt on August 26."
He also called on the international community to hold Israel responsible over crimes it commits against Palestinians.
