A top aide to Israel's Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter was wounded by gunfire from the Gaza Strip on Friday during a border tour with a delegation from Canada, medical staff said.
The aide was evacuated to a nearby hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. Dichter was nearby but was not injured in the shooting.
Israel Radio reported said the minister was accompanying a delegation of Canadian Jews on a visit to the Israeli border community of Nir Am, which is the target of frequent cross-border shooting and rocket attacks.
