Palestinian farmer shot, injured by Israeli forces in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian farmer was shot and injured by Israeli forces deployed on the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Saturday morning.

Witnesses told a Ma'an reporter that Israeli soldiers opened fire targeting a Palestinian farmer, who was working in his land in eastern al-Maghazi refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip.

Sources said that the farmer, who was not immediately identified, was injured in his leg; he was transferred to the Shuhada al-Aqsa Hospital for treatment where he was reported to be in a stable condition.

Meanwhile, Israeli military bulldozers entered dozens of meters into eastern Deir al-Balah, also in the central Gaza Strip, razed and leveled lands in the area.

Israeli soldiers deployed in the area reportedly heavily opened fire while bulldozers razed lands; no injuries were reported.

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.
