Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center,, for Tuesday, May, 30, 2017.

Two Palestinian injured in Gaza by Israeli gunfire in separate attacks. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Israeli navy ships opened fire, on Tuesday at dawn, on several fishing boats in Palestinian territorial waters, close to the shore in the Sudaniyya area, northwest of Gaza city, and injured a fisherman. Medical sources said the wounded fisherman, 24 years of age, was shot in the leg, and suffered a moderate injury, before the medics moved him to the Shifa Medical Center, in Gaza city.

Following the attack, the fishermen had to sail back, without being able to fish, in fear of further Israeli escalation.  The attack is part of ongoing Israeli violations, targeting the fishermen and their boats, including deliberately dest roying their boats and nets, in addition to frequently abducting them and confiscating their boats.

Tuesday attack come few hours after Israeli troops shoot and injured Palestinian man late Monday night near the northern borders of Gaza with Israel. The man was walking near the beach when troops shoot him in his leg, the 25 year old man was taken to the nearby Al Shifa hospital after sustaining moderate wounds, local sources reported.

Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Tuesday at dawn, the town of Barta’a, isolated behind the Annexation Wall, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and abducted a teenage boy. After troops cuffed and blindfolded the boy, soldiers interrogated the teen and his family, while violently searching their home, and took him to an unknown destination.

On Tuesday morning, Israeli troops detained a Palestinian girl, 17, at a checkpoint near the Ibrahimi mosque in the southern west Bank city of Hebron.  The Israeli army claimed that soldiers stopped the girl and searched her and found a knife in her bag then detained her and moved her to integration center.
