Medics: Israeli forces shoot man near Gaza border

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

Adbullah Maaroof, 19, was shot in the leg by Israeli forces and taken to the Kamal Udwan hospital for treatment, Palestinian medics said.

Israeli military sources said the army fired warning shots at Palestinians gathered near the border, and after they returned several times troops fired towards one person who was damaging the border fence.

Three Palestinians have been shot dead by Israeli soldiers along the border since the end of an eight-day offensive in November. Over 40 people have been wounded in the incidents, Gaza officials say.

On Friday, paramedics said that a man was hit in the foot by Israeli gunfire north of Beit Lahiya.

A man was killed last Tuesday after being shot in the head in the town of Beit Lahiya on the border with Israel, Gaza's health ministry said.
