Official: Israeli soldiers shoot, injure man in north Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers shot and injured a man in the northern Gaza Strip on Saturday, a health ministry spokesman said.

Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an said that Abdullah al-Zaneen, 32, was shot by Israeli forces east of Beit Hanoun. Al-Zaneen was employed by the Gaza government to work in a rubbish tip in the area.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that "initial investigations show there are no reports of the incident."

On Dec. 21, Israeli forces shot and injured five Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip, al-Qidra said.

Israeli troops have shot at Gazans near the border at least 10 times since the end of an eight-day offensive in November. Some 30 people have been wounded in the incidents, Gaza officials said.
