Israeli soldiers fired, on Friday morning, many rounds of live ammunition at Palestinian farmers, on their lands near the perimeter fence east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that the soldiers, stationed on military towers across the fence, fired sporadic rounds of live ammunition at the farmers in the al-Fakhari area, east of Khan Younis.

WAFA added that the attack did not lead to casualties, but forced the farmer to leave, in fear of additional Israeli military escalation.

The attack is part of ongoing violations against the Palestinians in the besieged and impoverished coastal region.

The attacks mainly target farmers and workers on Palestinian lands across the eastern parts of the Gaza Strip, and the fishermen in Gaza territorial waters, leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to serious property damage.
