Israeli Occupation Forces Attacks Farmers in Southern Gaza

M.Y | DOP -

The Israeli occupation forces attacked on Tuesday morning Palestinian farmers in the besieged Gaza Strip, with no reported casualties.

Local sources reported that Israeli soldiers at military posts behind the border fence fired machine guns and tear gas canisters at farmers and bird hunters in the east of Khuza’a town in southern Gaza.

Farmers also came under similar Israeli attack in the east of Rafah and Deir al-Balah in southern Gaza.

Luckily, all the farmers escaped unhurt from the targeted areas.

Under an inhumane siege, the Israeli army keeps attacking — sometimes injuring or killing — farmers and fishermen almost on a daily basis, with no regard for any mediated ceasefire deal in Gaza or even the international law.
