Teenager injured by Israeli fire in northern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was injured by Israeli fire on Wednesday while he collected construction aggregate in the the Al-Qaraya Al-Badawiya area in northern Gaza near the Erez crossing.

Gaza medical services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya said an unnamed 17-year-old was injured and transferred to the Kamal Udwan Hospital for treatment.

Workers are regularly injured by Israeli fire in the imposed "no-go" zone, which forces consider a live combat area. Abu Salmiya said that 17 workers, collecting gravel for construction use, have been injured by Israeli fire since the summer.

An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed the injury but was unable to identify the age of the injured. She said forces "identified a hit" after opening fire at the feet of a group of "suspects" approaching the area. Prior to opening fire toward them, she said, forces had called on the group to retreat and fired warning shots in the air.
