Israeli forces shoot, injure 5 Palestinians in northern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured five people on Friday in the northern Gaza Strip, a medical official said.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesperson for Gaza's Ministry of Health, told Ma'an that a 27-year-old man was shot in the foot by Israeli soldiers in Beit Lahiya.

The man, who was not identified, was taken to Kamal Adwan hospital and is in a moderate condition.

Four Palestinians were also injured by gunfire east of Jabaliya, al-Qidra said.

They were taken to Kamal Adwan hospital with moderate injuries.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said "two riots erupted near the security fence in northern Gaza. In one riot, 50 Palestinians crowded in a prohibited area and hurled rocks at IDF soldiers at the scene."

Israeli soldiers fired warning shots in the air before resorting to opening fire towards a main instigator, she said, adding that a direct hit was identified.

Earlier, seven Palestinians were injured when Israeli warplanes launched a series of airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

The injured were taken to hospitals, where medics described their wounds as light to moderate.

Last week, Israeli forces shot dead one Palestinian and injured another during a protest east of Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip.

Israeli forces frequently shoot at farmers and other civilians inside the Gaza Strip if they approach large swathes of land near the border that the Israeli military has deemed off-limits to Palestinians.
