GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian farmer was shot and injured with Israeli live ammunition while working in agricultural lands, east of Gaza City, on Friday.

According to medical sources in Gaza, an ambulance transferred the injured Palestinian farmer to the al-Shifa Hospital, west of Gaza City, to receive necessary treatment.

Sources confirmed that the farmer, whose identity remained unknown, was shot and injured in his foot, while working in agricultural lands near the return camps, east of Gaza City.

Sources added that the farmer is in moderate condition.

The shootings comes several hours prior to the start of the weekly “Great March of Return,” during which thousands of Palestinians take to the eastern borders of Gaza, as a form of protest against the 12-year Israeli siege.

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 12 years.
