JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers on Monday shot dead a Bedouin citizen of Israel who they suspected of breaking into a woman's home in southern Israel, Israeli media reported.
The 20-year-old man allegedly broke into a home in Sde Avraham and lightly wounded its resident with a knife, The Jerusalem Post reported.
As the community is close to Egypt and Gaza, the army was sent in on suspicion it was a "terror" incident, the report said.
Israeli authorities now believe the break-in was criminal in nature.
