Palestinian medical sources reported on Monday afternoon that an elderly Palestinian man was shot and killed by Israeli army fire in northern Gaza. The man was identified as Shaâban Shaker Al Qarmout, 65. He was killed when the army opened fire at agricultural lands in Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
The body of the slain man was moved to Kamal Odwan Hospital in Beit Lahia, also in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
In related news, Israeli troops carried out a limited invasion into Khuzaâa town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
Eyewitnesses reported that several tanks and armored vehicles advanced nearly 300 meters into farmlands close to the âsecurity fenceâ between the Gaza Strip and Israel. No clashes or injuries were reported.
