Israeli soldiers opened fire, on Friday morning, on Palestinian farmers in two areas in several parts of the Gaza Strip, while Israeli navy ships opened fire on fishing boats in Palestinian territorial waters, in northern Gaza.

Media sources in Gaza said the soldiers, stationed across the border fence, fired many rounds of live ammunition into Palestinian agricultural lands in Khuza’a and al-Qarara, near the border fence, in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, soldiers, stationed on military towers and in army vehicles across the border fence, opened fire on Palestinian farmers in the al-Maghazi refugee camp, in central Gaza, and east of the Zeitoun neighborhood, east of Gaza City.

The attacks did not lead to casualties, but forced the farmers out of their lands, in fear of additional escalation.

In addition, Israeli navy ships opened fire on a number of Palestinian fishing boats in the Sudaniyya area, in the northern part of the coastal region, no injuries were reported.

On Friday at dawn, the soldiers invaded the towns of Beit Fajjar and Za’tara, in the West Bank district of Bethlehem, searched homes and kidnapped one Palestinian.
