Medics: Israeli forces shoot, injure man in north Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a man in north Gaza on Monday, Palestinian medics said.

Medical officials at Kamal Odwan Hospital told Ma'an that the unidentified man was shot in the head near Beit Lahiya and is in a critical condition.

On Friday, Anwar Muhammad al-Mamlouk, 22, was killed by Israeli fire east of Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza, health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an.

Another man was seriously wounded and taken to the Kamal Udwan Hospital by paramedics.

Al-Mamlouk was in an outdoor area studying for an exam when he was killed, according to his brother Hani, who was not harmed in the incident.

Israeli military sources said that some Palestinians had tried to damage the fence and Israeli soldiers identified a direct hit on the legs of one of the people involved.

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 say.
