Palestinian seriously wounded by Israeli fire on central Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A 22-year-old Palestinian was seriously wounded on Friday morning by Israeli tank fire on the central Gaza Strip, medics said.

Witnesses said Israeli artillery fired several shells on a group of farmers east of Al-Bureij refugee camp.

Ministry of health spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said a young man was brought to al-Aqsa hospital with serious wounds to the neck and chest.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said forces fired on "a suspect apparently placing an explosive device." She said no explosion had ensued, but noted that an Israeli soldier had been wounded by explosives in the same area two weeks ago.
