Israeli troops stationed along the border with the Gaza Strip on Sunday morning opened fire toward Palestinian farmers working on their lands on the eastern outskirts of Khan Younis, witnesses told Ma'an.
The soldiers fired gunshots and smoke bombs at agricultural lands and into residential neighborhoods from military watchtowers east of the village of Khuzaa, forcing farmers to leave their fields.
No casualties were reported as a result of the attack, which is the third such incident in the area since Thursday.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was "unfamiliar" with the incident.
Khuzaa is a small agricultural town that was severely damaged by Israel during the summer assault, when more than half of the village's homes were destroyed and dozens of civilians reportedly killed in three days of intense shelling.
Israeli forces have repeatedly opened fire toward Palestinian civilians near the border in the five months since the signing of a ceasefire agreement that ended a more than 50-day assault by Israel on Gaza that left around 2,200 dead and 11,000 injured. more
