Israeli forces, on Tuesday morning, opened fire at Palestinian farmers and fishermen during separate incidents, in the north and south of the Gaza Strip, local sources said.

Israeli forces deployed at borderline military outposts east of Maghazi refugee camp, in the central Gaza Strip, and east of Khan Younis, south of the Strip, opened fire at farmers who were working on their land, said the sources.

There were no reports of casualties, according to WAFA correspondence, but the farmers left the area in fear for their lives.

Israeli navy forces also opened fire at fishermen sailing off the northern coast of the Strip. No injuries were reported, however.

Residents say that they come under daily attack from Israeli army and naval forces, who interfere in their daily quest for livelihood.

Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes flew low over several areas of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday and, for the second day, said residents, breaking the sound barrier and making loud sonic booms, causing panic in the streets.
