On Wednesday morning, Israeli soldiers, stationed across the perimeter fence east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, opened fire at Palestinian farmers and shepherds, forcing them to leave.

Media sources said the soldiers fired many live rounds at Palestinian farmers, in addition to shepherds, in the eastern part of the al-Fakhari area, east of Khan Younis.

They added that the attacks did not lead to casualties but forced the farmers and shepherds to leave their lands to avoid further Israeli military attacks.

Such attacks are frequent in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, as the soldiers constantly attack farmers and shepherds in lands close to the perimeter fence across the eastern parts of the Gaza Strip, and fishermen in Gaza territorial waters.

These attacks have led to many casualties, including fatalities, in addition to the abduction of many farmers, shepherds, and fishermen.
