Medics: Israeli forces shoot 2 Palestinians in north Gaza

Sept. 20, 2013 9:26 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 24, 2013 2:02 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two people were shot and injured by Israeli forces on Friday in the northern Gaza Strip, witnesses said.

Israeli forces in a watchtower north of Beit Lahiya shot at people walking in the area, injuring two, the witnesses said.

Medics said that one person was shot in the foot while another was shot in the thigh. Both suffered moderate injuries.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said soldiers opened fire after several Palestinians approached a security fence and hurled rocks in an attempt to damage it.

She said soldiers first fired warning shots to disperse the scene and later fired at the Palestinians when they refused to respond. She said two hits were identified.
