Israeli forces open fire at Palestinian farmers in Gaza

April 13, 2019 10:32 A.M. (Updated: April 13, 2019 12:37 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces repeatedly opened fire, on Saturday morning, towards agricultural lands and open fields, in the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

According to local sources, Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian farmers while working in their lands, east of Khuzaa town, in the eastern Khan Younis district, in southern Gaza.

No injuries were reported.

The Israeli army also regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach the buffer zone, as the authorities have not made clear the precise area of the designated 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.
