GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) -- Israeli troops have shot dead a Palestinian man and wounded 19 people as crowds surged toward Gaza's border fence with Israel today.
It's the first violence since a truce between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers took hold a day before.
An Associated Press Television News cameraman says hundreds of Palestinians approached Israel's border fence in several locations in southern Gaza.
In the past, Israel's military has barred Palestinians from getting close to the fence, and soldiers opened fire routinely to enforce a no-go zone meant to prevent infiltrations into Israel.
But since the cease-fire, growing numbers of Gazans have entered the no-go zone.
Today's shooting does not appear to pose an immediate threat to the Egypt-brokered cease-fire, which calls for an end to Gaza rocket fire on Israel and Israeli airstrikes on Gaza.
