Israeli forces target Gazans from sea, northern border and south

Gaza - Ma'an - Twenty-six year old Muhammad Odeh Abu Mu’ammar and his 28-year-old brother were wounded by what medics in Khan Younis said was shrapnel from an Israeli artillery shell Tuesday afternoon.

The attack, which left the men in moderate condition, followed two other incidents earlier in the day.

Israeli naval squadrons opened fire on Gazan fishermen in their boats off the shore of Tel As-Sultan in Rafah on Tuesday morning, and military forces clashed with fighters in the north. No injuries were reported from either incident.

Eyewitnesses reported an Israeli gunboat fired on a cluster of fishermen on the southern coast of Gaza without warning, causing no damage or injuries.

In the north near Beit Lahiya, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)'s military wing, the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, reported a clash with invading Israeli forces near the border area at the As-Sifa neighborhood. A statement from the group said Israeli forces responded with machine gun fire and small grenades.

In their statement the group said they would maintain their resistance operations as a method of resisting the Israeli occupation.
