Israeli forces shoot, injure man in northern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli forces opened fire on dozens of Palestinians who had stormed an area of the buffer zone east of Jabaliya, injuring a 19-year-old in the leg.

He was taken to Kamal Adwan hospital with moderate injuries.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said there was a gathering of "approximately 150 Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip. Two approached the security fence in a prohibited area and so soldiers called on them to stop. Once they failed to comply, they fired warning shots and then fired at their lower extremities. One hit was identified."

In early March, Israeli forces shot and killed 57-year-old Aminah Qudeih east of Khan Younis when she approached the separation barrier between Israel and the Gaza Strip.

The woman's relatives told AP she was mentally ill, and assumed she wandered toward the border by mistake.

Israeli military forces have killed over 60 Palestinians and injured 897 since the resumption of peace negotiations with Israel in July, the Palestine Liberation Organization said this week.
