A Palestinian woman was shot and injured by Israeli army fire near the Sufa crossing in the southern part of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning.

Medical sources reported that 35-year-old Aishah Attayia sustained moderate wounds in her leg and was moved to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Witnesses reported that Israeli soldiers manning the borders opened fire without any reason injuring Aishah.

On Monday night Israel informed the Egyptian mediators for the truce between Hamas which controls Gaza, and Israel that the Israeli troops will open fire at any Palestinian that approaches close to the borders.

The Hamas movement consider this Israeli decision as a violation of the truce.
