Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian farmers working in their fields along the border area between Israel and the Gaza Strip Tuesday morning.
Witnesses told Ma'an that gunfire came from Israeli watchtowers commanding the border area opposite to Shujaiyya, Zaytoun and Juhr al-Dik neighborhoods. All farmers were forced to leave their fields following the incident.
Separately, Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian Khalid Saad al-Din's car near the northern borders of the Gaza Strip while he was on the way to his agricultural land 400 meters from the border.
Al-Din's car was set ablaze following direct hits from Israeli live fire, but he was able to safely flee his burning vehicle, according to witnesses.
No injuries have been reported in either incident. more
