On Thursday morning, Israeli soldiers fired many live rounds and high-velocity gas bombs at Palestinian farmers on their lands east of Khan Younis, in the besieged Gaza Strip’s southern part.
Media sources said the soldiers, on military towers and in their tanks, across the perimeter fence east of the Gaza Strip, attacked the farmers with live fire and high-velocity gas bombs while working on their lands in the Al-Fakhari area.
The sources added that the attacks did not lead to casualties, but forced the Palestinians to leave their lands, fearing further Israeli violations.
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 killed three fishermen.
On Thursday dawn, Israeli soldiers abducted at least seventeen Palestinians, including one woman, two former political prisoners, and the head of a Village Council, from their homes in several parts of the occupied West Bank, including the occupied capital Jerusalem.
