Israeli military jeeps opened fire towards Palestinian farmers along Gaza’s southern border region, near the town of Khuza’a, east of Khan Younis.According to Al Ray correspondence, several Israeli military jeeps opened fire intermittently towards farmers who were harvesting winter crops, in the land just adjacent to the border.

Jeeps reportedly resumed heavy fire on farmers to the north of the landfill; no injuries were reported.

Though the workers were engaged in the harvest of mature wheat and barley, Israeli forces support their actions with the claim that the area in question is located in a military security zone.
