Israeli soldiers, stationed on military towers across the border fence, opened fire into Palestinian agricultural lands, and several homes, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) said the soldiers fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition on homes and agricultural lands, east of Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younis, causing property damage.

The farmers had to leave their lands fearing additional Israeli military escalation.

WAFA said Israeli planes also sprayed chemicals on Palestinian agricultural lands, close to the border fence, to render them useless in an attempt to keep the Palestinians out of their lands, adjacent to the border fence.

The Israeli army conducts daily assaults and violations targeting the Palestinians and their lands, in border areas in the coastal region, in addition to frequent attacks on Palestinian fishers and their boats in Gaza territorial waters.
