Israeli Military Forces targeted Friday, December 23, 2022 Palestinian farmers east of Khan Younes district in the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

The heavily-armed soldiers stationed along Gaza’s eastern frontier and directly opened gunfire towards the farmlands, east of the district, preventing them from tending to their lands.

Two million Palestinians live the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to a punishing and crippling Israeli blockade for 16 years and repeated onslaughts that have heavily damaged much of its infrastructure.

Gaza’s 2-million population remains under “remote control” occupation and a strict siege, which has destroyed the local economy, strangled Palestinian livelihoods, plunged them into unprecedented rates of unemployment and poverty, and cut off from the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories and the wider world.
