The suspect is being questioned regarding the shooting.
The IDF said on Monday night that following an initial investigation,
it did not seem that the 10-year-old from Rafah was hit by IDF tank
Palestinians had originally claimed that the girl was killed by
shrapnel fired from an IDF tank shell at an UNWRA schoolyard in
Rafah, where Dib was playing.
The Palestinians used the supposed killing as a pretext to resume
firing mortars at Gaza Strip settlements.
During the day Monday, soldiers positioned in posts located along the
Philadelphi Route fired twice from light weapons into areas far from
where the girl was hit, security officials said.
The officials said that at the time the girl was killed, officials at
