Israeli forces open fire, injure Palestinian farmer in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian farmers, on Sunday morning, in several areas along the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to local sources, Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian farmers, while working in their lands, east of Beit Hanoun town, in northern Gaza.

Sources confirmed that one farmer was injured by Israeli forces and transferred to the Beit Hanoun Hospital to receive necessary medical treatment.

The medical condition of the injured Palestinian remained unknown.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces also opened fire at farmers, east of the al-Maghazi refugee camp, in central Gaza.

The farmers were forced to leave their lands in fear for their lives.

No injuries were reported from the incident.

The Israeli army regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds and farmers along the border areas if they approach the unilaterally declared buffer zone.

As part of Israel's blockade of the coastal enclave since 2007, the Israeli army, citing security concerns, requires Palestinian fishermen to work within a limited "designated fishing zone," the exact limits of which are decided by the Israeli authorities and have historically fluctuated.
