Israeli forces kill Palestinian farmer in Gaza

April 5, 2008 4:45 P.M. (Updated: April 5, 2008 4:45 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Israeli forces shot and killed a 35-year-old Palestinian farmer named Ra'fat Mansour and injured another Palestinian man during an ongoing attack on the area near the cemetery in the northern Gaza Strip, medics said.

Medical sources added that Mansour was dead when he arrived at Al-Awda hospital. The other man, Muhammad Mansour, is reported to be injured mildly.

Mansour is the second farmer, and the third unarmed Palestinian civilian to be killed by Israeli forces near Gaza's border wall.

The Israeli military recently enlarged the "Buffer Zone" inside the Strip along the border with Israel. Palestinians are now forbidden from approaching within 800 meters of the border. Israeli soldiers routinely shoot at Palestinians, including farmers tending their land, who enter the border zone.
