Israeli forces target Gazan farmers, fishermen

April 18, 2019 11:44 A.M. (Updated: April 18, 2019 3:51 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire targeting Palestinian farmers and fishermen across the besieged Gaza Strip, on Thursday.

Witnesses told a Ma'an reporter that Israeli forces deployed in military watchtowers opened fire at farmers working in their lands in the Khuzaa town in the Khan Younis district in the southern Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, Israeli war boats opened fire targeting Palestinian fishermen off the coast of the northern and southern Gaza Strip.

No injuries were reported.

The Israeli army also regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach the buffer zone, as the authorities have not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural and fishing sector of the blockaded coastal enclave, which has been under an Israeli air, land, and sea blockade for 10 years.
