Israeli forces open fire at farmers south of the besieged Gaza Strip


Israeli forces stationed along the border with the Gaza Strip opened today their heavy machine gunfire toward agricultural land to the east of Khan Younis governorate, south of the besieged Gaza Strip, according to sources. Forces stationed at the "Kisofim" military site east of al-Qarara area in the southern Strip opened intensive fire toward agricultural lands east of Khan Younis, forcing Palestinian farmers to leave the area for fear of being injured or killed. No injuries were reported. Israeli forces regularly open fire at Palestinians who come within several hundred meters from the border fence between Gaza and Israel, whether to work on their lands or to herd their cattle.
