GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – A Palestinian woman was shot and injured by Israeli fire in the southern Gaza Strip Wednesday morning, medical officials said.

The 27-year-old Rinad Qudeih was hit by a gunshot to the head when Israeli soldiers stationed in military towers opened fire near the southern Gaza Strip.

Qudeih was working in her family’s field when she sustained a superficial wound in the head, witnesses said. She was evacuated to the military hospital in Abasan village east of Khan Younis.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said soldiers "acted to distance" a number of suspects who approached the southern Gaza Strip's border with Israel. She did not elaborate.
