Palestinian medical sources reported Saturday that a Palestinian man was shot and wounded by Israeli military fire, north of Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, the Arabs48 news website reported.The sources stated that medics transferred the wounded 32-year-old man to Kamal Odwan Hospital after he was shot in the leg.

Israel imposes an illegal buffer-zone along the border, preventing the Palestinians from entering their own lands that are close to the border fence. Dozens of casualties, including several fatalities were reported in similar attacks.

Despite the fact that when Israel declared this “buffer zone” it stated that it extends to 300 meters along the border with northern Gaza, on the ground, the zone extends to more than 1 kilometer, preventing the residents from planting their own lands, or even entering them.
