Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza is being shelled. One person has been killed so far and seven injured. Resistance fighters say they have shot one Israeli soldier, according to Maan news agency.
Gaza – Ma'an – A Palestinian man was killed and seven others were injured by Israeli tank shelling that reportedly targeted armed Palestinian operatives in the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday afternoon.
Medics at Beit Hanoun Government Hospital identified the slain man as Mohammad Al-Kafarneh, 22. Seven others sustained serious wounds and one was listed in critical condition, hospital officials said. They were not immediately identified.
An Israeli soldier was also shot, the armed wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine said. The National Resistance Brigades said its forces targeted an Israeli patrol that crossed into Palestinian territory along the 300-meter no-go zone east of Beit Hanoun. A sniper "fired directly at an Israeli soldier who was inside Gaza, near Beit Hanoun, at 2:50 p.m. Wednesday evening," the armed group said in a statement. more
