On Tuesday, Israeli soldiers fired many high-velocity gas rounds at Palestinian shepherds east of Khan Younis, in the northern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Media sources said the shepherds brought their livestock to graze on lands close to the perimeter fence, east of Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younis.
They added that the soldiers stationed across the perimeter fence fired many live rounds at the farmers, forcing them to leave.
The army also forced many Palestinian farmlands to leave their lands close to the fence in several eastern parts of the coastal region.
The attacks are part of frequent Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermen, farmers, shepherds, and workers in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, and resulted in dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to severe property damage and the confiscation of many boats after abducting the fishermen.
In March of last year, 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
