At approximately 06:30, an IOF infantry unit moved nearly 250 meters into al-Sayafa area in the northwest of Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip. Israeli troops fired at a number of Palestinian workers who were collecting bricks and stones from a site of the former Israeli settlements "Dogit" and "Elli Sinai". As a result, 'Aayesh As'ad al-Sous, 25, was wounded by a bullet to the right foot and shrapnel to the left foot. Al-Sous was positioned at least 450 meters from the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel when he was wounded.

At approximately 12:50, Israeli troops stationed in the vicinity of Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing in the northern Gaza Strip fired sporadically for two hours at Ahmed 'Ouda Abu Shallouf, 42, and Fareed Mohammed Sha'ban, who were stranded at the crossing and protesting their deportation to the Gaza Strip. The two Palestinians demanded that IOF allow them to return to the Israeli town of Be'r al-Saba' to join their families. IOF had deported the two Palestinians because they had allegedly been living in Israel illegally. The two men were forced to move 150 meters from the crossing and at approximately 17:00, were forced to enter Gaza.
