Israeli soldiers, stationed across the border fence east of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, opened fire, on Saturday evening, at a number of shepherds and farmers.

The soldiers fired many live rounds at the shepherds and the farmers, forcing them to leave their lands in fear for their lives.

The soldiers were stationed on military towers in the “Sofa” army base, across the border fence, east of Rafah.

The Israeli army frequently attacks the Palestinians in their lands, especially in areas close to the border fence, in addition to the repeated attacks against the fishers and their boats in Palestinian territorial waters in the Gaza Strip.
