2 Palestinians injured by Israeli artillery fire in southern Gaza

Two Palestinians were injured in southern Gaza on Friday after reports of shelling in the area by Israeli military forces, medical officials said.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesperson of the Ministry of Health, told Ma'an that two youths were injured by shrapnel from shells fired by Israel's military in the al-Fukhari area east of Khan Younis.

Both unidentified youths were taken to the European Hospital for treatment for moderate injuries.

An Israeli army spokesperson said two Palestinian suspects breached the buffer zone and approached the security fence. Israeli forces fired warning shots in the air before using live fire and tank rounds against the suspects.

Meanwhile, shots were fired at an Israeli military vehicle in the southern Gaza Strip, causing damage to the windshield, the spokesperson added. more
