On Monday, Israeli soldiers attacked with live ammunition Palestinian farmers and shepherds, east of Gaza city, and Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, while navy ships attacked fishing boats in Palestinian territorial waters.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers fired many rounds of live ammunition, in addition to concussion grenades at Palestinian farmers, working on their farmlands near the fence, east of the az-Zeitoun neighborhood, in Gaza city.

They added that the attack did not lead to casualties, but forced the Palestinians out of their lands.

In addition, the soldiers fired bursts of sporadic live fire at shepherds on Palestinian lands, east of the al-Qarara town, east of Khan Younis, forcing them to leave.

Furthermore, Israeli navy ships fired live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats, less than six nautical miles from the shore of Gaza city, causing damage, and endearing the lives of the fishermen who had to leave without being able to fish to provide for their families.
