A young Palestinian was injured on Sunday, by gunfire coming from the Israeli watchtowers located around 500 meters from where he works in Beit Lahia, Northern Gaza Strip the International Solidarity Movement reports.
He explains, “I went to work at 9 am. After about 30 minutes, the soldiers started shooting.” He adds, “some time ago, they were shooting just to scare us, not directly at our bodies. We work just to buy bread for our family, and they hit us.”
His father summoned an ambulance and at the hospital it was found that the 17 year old suffered from a fracture in the shinbone caused by the bullet.
The young man and his father believe that the fire came from control towers situated along the apartheid wall, inside of which there are automatic machine guns. more
