Israeli soldiers, stationed on military towers across the border fence, opened fire on Sunday morning, into Palestinian agricultural lands east of Khuza’a town, east of the southern Gaza Strip district of Khan Younis.
Eyewitnesses said the soldiers fired many live rounds into the agricultural lands, forcing the farmers to leave in fear of further military escalations. The attack caused no injuries.
It is worth mentioning that a number of Israeli tanks and armored vehicles were also seen driving close to the border fence, in early morning hours, while military drones hovered over various areas on the coastal region.
Border areas in the Gaza Strip witness frequent violations, including repeated invasions, an issue that prevents the Palestinians from working on their own lands. Similar attacks also target fisher in Gaza territorial waters.
In addition, the soldiers kidnapped a limited military drill near Palestinian dwellings and communities, east of Tubas, in central West Bank.
The army frequently conducts training in certain areas, including al-Maleh, Al-Farisiyya and Umm al-Jimal, east of Tubas, and usually forces the families to leave during the training in the communities.
This time around, the soldiers conducted limited training without ordering the Palestinians to leave.
