GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a man east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday, witnesses said.

A number of Israeli vehicles, including six bulldozers and a number of tanks, entered a border area in southern Gaza and began leveling Palestinian land.

Israeli forces fired shots in the area, injuring one man, locals said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that a Palestinian suspect approached the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip, with Israeli soldiers firing warning shots in the air.

"Once the suspect failed to comply and continued to approach the fence, soldiers opened fire towards the suspects' lower extremities," she added.

Meanwhile, Israeli gunboats opened fire at fishermen off the southern coast of Gaza, locals told Ma'an.

No injuries or arrests were reported.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said Palestinian fishing boats deviated from the designated fishing area and Israeli soldiers fired warning shots in the air.
