Israeli forces shoot, injure Palestinian in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and moderately wounded a Palestinian man in the al-Mintar area east of Gaza City on Monday afternoon, medical sources told Ma'an.

The man, who was shot in his foot, was evacuated to al-Shifaa hospital.

The circumstances in which he was shot were not initially clear, although medics said he was with a group of Palestinians when Israeli forces opened fire.

An Israeli army spokesperson had no immediate information on the reports.

Palestinians regularly face live fire from Israeli forces inside the "buffer zone" along the border between Gaza and Israel.

The Israeli army says the use of live fire is necessary to deter potential "security threats," although the practice has destroyed much of both the agricultural and fishing sectors of the impoverished coastal enclave, which has been under Israeli blockade for nearly nine years.
