Israeli Occupation Forces Target Gaza’s Farmers

M.Y | DOP -

Days of Palestine – Gaza

The Israeli occupation forces targeted Thursday farmers with machine guns, tear gas, and sound bombs, east of Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip.

Our correspondent said that the occupation soldiers stationed in the military towers east of Khan Yunis fired heavily and tear gas canisters, in addition, to stun grenades, towards farmers east of Khuza’a town, east of the governorate, forcing them to leave their farms.

Meanwhile, the occupation forces opened fire and tear gas at agricultural lands, east of the central governorate of the Gaza Strip.

No one was reported injured in any of the incidents.

Israeli occupation does not allow landowners and shepherds to be in the open pastures and lands near the border fence and tries to create a buffer zone at the expense of the Gaza lands.

Fishermen also are not allowed to go deeper than six nautical miles into the sea in the south of the Gaza Strip and only three nautical miles in the north. But even then, fishermen are still attacked even if they stay within their marked zones.

The Gaza Strip has been under tight Israeli sea, land, and air siege since 2005.

Israeli occupation controls everything that enters or leaves the Gaza Strip.
