Medics: Israeli forces shoot, detain Gaza man

Gaza – Ma’an – Israeli forces shot and detained a Palestinian on the Gaza Strip’s northern border on Wednesday morning, a government medical official said.

Muawiyah Hassanein, the director of ambulance and emergency services in the Gaza Health Ministry, told Ma’an that the Israeli forces opened fire on a man who has not yet been identified, injuring him.

Hassanein said the soldiers denied a Palestinian ambulance permission to retrieve him, leaving him bleeding near the border.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that Israeli forces shot the man after he ignored warning shots for approaching the border. She said soldiers administered initial medical treatment before transferring him to Barzilai hospital in the city of Ashkelon.

Hassanein said the Health Ministry is in contact with the Israeli military to find out the wounded man’s to try to return him to Gaza.
