Gaza – Ma'an – Israeli shelling injured several Palestinians east of Gaza City on Friday evening, residents said.

Medics reportedly evacuated two people after the attack near Nahal Oz crossing.

"Ambulances are attempting to reach the injured," an onlooker told Ma'an over the phone, adding that others were hurt.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an that soldiers opened fire after they identified someone operating a weapon in the vicinity of the border crossing.

The army was not aware of any injuries, she added.

The Hebrew-language daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported three Palestinians injured.
