GAZA (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Wednesday opened fire at Palestinians east of al-Maghazi refugee camp in the Gaza Strip near the Israeli border, local sources said.

Local sources said Israeli forces opened live fire at Palestinian lands and houses in the camp, but that the fire did not result in any injuries.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond for comment, and it is unknown if there were protests or clashes in the area at the time.

On Tuesday, Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian youth with live fire in central Gaza's al-Bureij refugee camp, the site of frequent clashes with Israeli forces in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, forces also opened fire at Palestinian fishermen on Tuesday, near the Beit Lahiya coast in the northern Strip, damaging fishing nets but causing no injuries.

Israeli forces have repeatedly opened fire on Palestinian fishermen and farmers since the ceasefire agreement signed Aug. 26, 2014 that ended a devastating 50-day Israeli military offensive against the Gaza Strip.
