A United Nations vehicle came under fire in southern Gaza’s Rafah, Palestinian media and Israel’s Kan public broadcaster report.

According to Palestinian media, a Palestinian driver was killed and a UN worker was wounded. Kan says the UN worker is in serious condition.

Kan reports that the incident occurred near the Rafah Crossing with Egypt, of which the Palestinian side is currently under Israeli control.

It is unclear if Israeli forces or terror operatives opened fire at the UN car. The IDF has no immediate comment.

Also today, Hamas claimed to have launched mortars at Israeli forces in the Rafah Crossing area.
