Palestinian medical sources reported that a woman was shot and wounded on Wednesday morning, after Israeli soldiers opened fire at farmers working on their land in Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.The woman, who was identified as 33 year old Renad Salem Qdeih, was shot in the head; receiving injuries described as moderate-to-severe.

Renad Salem Qdeih’s land is approximately 1 kilometer away from the Israeli “security fence” that separates Gaza from the state of Israel.

On Monday Israeli soldiers shot and wounded a Palestinian farmer in the same area; claiming that the farmer approached the “security fence”.

By using force to control the buffer-zone near the security fence, the army prevents many farmers and workers with land in this area from being able to work in order to provide food for their families.
