Israeli forces open fire east of Gaza City

June 9, 2014 11:21 A.M. (Updated: June 10, 2014 9:49 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire on the central Gaza Strip on Monday, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli forces deployed near the now defunct Karni Crossing and opened fire in the direction of Gaza City.

No injuries were reported.

Meanwhile, Israeli gunboats opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of northern Gaza.

An army spokeswoman said she knew of two incidents involving Palestinians approaching the border with Israel on Monday.

In both incidents, which took place in the northern Gaza Strip, Palestinians "approached the border" and Israeli soldiers fired warning shots into the air.

The Palestinians then "distanced themselves," she said, without providing information about what they were doing in the area.
