STORY: Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said on Friday the shooting of a Palestinian man by Israeli soldiers close to the Gaza-Israel border violated a ceasefire agreement.
Malki, speaking at a meeting with Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi, said: "I hope what happened today is only an exception rather than the norm and that the Israelis will abide by the agreements that have been reached."
He called the incident a violation of the ceasefire agreement.
"The fact that a Palestinian was killed and nine were injured they were not really killed by friendly fire from the Palestinian side they were killed by Israeli fire coming from across the border. So this is really a clear violation of the agreement that really was signed and I hope that Egypt really has to be very clear, very strong, when a violation like this really happens and not to be repeated again."
The Egyptian-brokered ceasefire between Israel and Hamas came into force late on Wednesday after eight days of conflict.
