Israeli forces open fire at Palestinian farmers, shepherds in Gaza

Nov. 18, 2018 11:51 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 19, 2018 4:20 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian farmers, shepherds, and bird hunters, on Sunday, along the eastern borders of the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli forces opened fire towards agricultural lands, east of Khan Younis City and southeast of Gaza City.

Reports confirmed that in both locations, Israeli forces repeatedly shot at farmers, shepherds, and bird hunters, while they were working in their lands.

No injuries were reported from both incidents.

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

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural and fishing sector of the blockaded coastal enclave, which has been under an Israeli air, land, and sea blockade for nearly 12 years.
