DAYS OF PALESTINE – GAZA
Israeli occupation forces (IOF), on Tuesday, targeted Palestinian farmers east of Deir al-Balah city in the central Gaza Strip and fishermen in the north of the sea enclave, according local sources.
IOF stationed along the border, east of Deir al-Balah, opened fire towards a group of farmers who were attempting to reach their groves.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation navy opened fire and water hoses at Palestinian fishermen sailing three nautical miles off west of Gaza shore, causing damage to at least one boat and forcing the fishermen to return.
No casualties were reported, however, in either attack.
Two million Palestinians live the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to a punishing and crippling Israeli blockade for 14 years and repeated onslaughts that have heavily damaged much of the enclave’s infrastructure, destroyed the economy, strangled Palestinian livelihoods, plunged them into unprecedented rates of unemployment and poverty, and cut them off from the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories and the wider world.
