Israeli forces injure worker in northern Gaza

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian worker was injured by Israeli fire on Wednesday near the northern no-go area in Beit Lahiya.

Medical services spokesman Adham Abu Silmiyya said Muhammad Yousif Ma'rouf, 23, was injured as he collected scrap in the area.

Ma'rouf was transferred to the Kamal Odwan Hospital for treatment.

A spokeswoman for Israel's army said a force in the area identified "four suspects" approaching the area, calling on them to leave and firing warning shots. The representative said they failed to leave the area, and the force opened fire at their feet, identifying a hit.

On Tuesday, a Palestinian worker collecting stone aggregates near Gaza's northern border was injured when Israeli forces stationed near the Erez crossing opened fire.

The worker said he was collecting rubble from an evacuated settlement before the incident.
