Israeli forces open fire at agricultural lands in southern Gaza

GAZA (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces opened fire at agricultural lands east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip on Thursday morning.

Eyewitnesses told Ma’an that Israeli forces stationed inside a watchtower near the border opened fire in the area, without causing injuries.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into the reports.

Israeli military incursions inside the besieged Gaza Strip and near the “buffer zone," which lies on both the land and sea sides of Gaza, have long been a near-daily occurrence.

Palestinians who work near the unilaterally declared “buffer zone” between the Palestinian enclave and Israel often come under fire from military forces, as the Israeli military has not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural sector of the blockaded coastal enclave.
