Israeli soldiers opened fire, on Saturday morning, into Palestinian farmlands in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the soldiers, station in Kissufim military base, across the fence, fired many live rounds into the farmlands east of the al-Qarara town, east of Khan Younis.

They added that the attack did not lead to casualties but forced the Palestinian farmers to leave, fearing further Israeli escalation against them.

The army frequently attacks farmersshepherds, workers, and fishermen across the eastern parts of the coastal region and in Palestinian territorial waters, leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to preventing the Palestinians from tending to their lands and from fishing to provide for their families.

In March 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
