Israeli troops open fire at Gaza farmers collecting wheat


GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces early Saturday opened fire at Palestinian farmers in the southern Gaza Strip, witnesses told Ma'an.

Locals said Israeli troops stationed in watchtowers near the village of Khuzaa east of Khan Younis shot at Palestinian farmers as they were collecting wheat.

No injuries were reported.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the incident.

Israeli forces regularly shoot at farmers and other civilians inside the Gaza Strip if they approach large swathes of land near the border that the Israeli military has deemed off-limits to Palestinians. more
