Israeli forces open fire at Palestinian shepherds in Gaza

March 3, 2017 5:22 P.M. (Updated: March 4, 2017 10:06 P.M.)
GAZA (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian shepherds on Friday east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip. 

Witnesses told Ma’an that Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinians in the town of Khazaa. No injuries were reported. 

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an she would look into reports on the incident. 

The Israeli army regularly opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach Israel’s unilaterally declared “buffer zone,” which lies on both the land and sea sides of Gaza.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural and fishing sector of the blockaded coastal enclave.
