GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian farmers in the central and southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers stationed in watchtowers opened fire at Palestinian farmers near the separation fence in Khan Younis and Deir al-Balah.

The gunfire hit several homes in the area, with no injuries reported.

Meanwhile, Israeli naval forces opened fire at fishermen off the coast of Khan Younis, witnesses added.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said there were no reports of the incidents.

Since a ceasefire in November 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.
