Israeli forces shoot, injure farmer in southern Gaza

June 10, 2013 12:07 P.M. (Updated: June 11, 2013 2:11 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a farmer in the southern Gaza Strip on Monday, a medical official said.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman for Gaza's health ministry, told Ma'an that a 21-year-old farmer was seriously wounded after being shot in the chest by Israeli soldiers stationed near the border.

The incident took place east of Khan Younis and the man was transferred to hospital and is said to be in a critical condition.

An Israeli army spokesman did not return calls seeking comment.

Last week, Ahmad Hamdin, 21, was shot by Israeli soldiers east of Jabalia, northern Gaza, while picking watermelons.

Since the November ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, Israeli forces have shot and killed three people in the Gaza Strip and injured at least 60, amid numerous incursions into border areas of the coastal territory.
