Israeli soldiers attacked, Tuesday morning, Palestinian farmers and fishermen east of Khan Younis and northeast of Gaza city in the besieged Gaza Strip.
Media sources said the soldiers, stationed across the perimeter fence, fired many gas bombs and live rounds at Palestinian farmers on their lands in the Najjar neighborhood east of Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.
They added that Israeli navy ships fired live rounds and gas bombs at Palestinian fishing boats west of the Sudaniyya area, north of Gaza city.
The attacks did not lead to casualties but caused damage and forced the fishermen and the farmers to leave, fearing further Israeli escalation.
On Monday, Israeli navy ships fired many live rounds and gas bombs at Palestinian fishing boats and farmers, near Khan Younis and Gaza city.
On Sunday, Israeli soldiers opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats, homes, and farmlands, wounding a young woman in her home, Rafah and Khan Younis, in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.
The attacks are part of constant 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 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
