Barikeh was killed by tank fire, Palestinian officials said, while the Israeli army said five of its soldiers were wounded by an explosive device. The Israeli military said the fighting erupted when an explosive device went off as troops were clearing a tunnel from the Gaza Strip into Israel, allegedly to be used as a springboard for militant attacks.
