GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian farmers tending to their fields in the outskirts of the village of Khuzaa east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, locals said.
Witnesses told Ma’an that the Israeli soldiers fired from machine guns prompting the farmers to leave their fields. No injuries were reported. An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports.
The incident marked the third consecutive day live fire was reportedly opened on agricultural lands in the southern Gaza Strip, and follows four days of airstrikes by Israeli forces that targeted the area last week.
