Israeli forces deployed on the border east of Khan Younis opened fire at Palestinians on Friday. Witnesses report the shots were fired on Palestinians in their agricultural lands in eastern al-Qarrara, north of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.
An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that soldiers fired warning shots as Palestinians approached the fence, after which the individuals turned back.
No injuries were reported.
Palestinians whose agricultural lands lie close to the buffer zone between Gaza and Israel have reported open fire from Israeli forces as a routine occurrence. more
