GAZA, Wednesday, January 20, 2021 (WAFA) – A Palestinian man was injured last tonight by shrapnel from an artillery shell fired by Israeli occupation forces at a site in the Gaza Strip, reported WAFA correspondent.
He said that an artillery shell fired by an Israeli tank stationed behind the common borders with Gaza hit a house in Maghazi refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip injuring one resident who was transferred to hospital in Deir Al-Balah.
A medical source told WAFA that the shrapnel hit the man in the leg and he was reported in stable condition.
Israeli tanks also targeted locations east of Gaza City, as well as east of Bureij and Maghazi refugee camps in the central Gaza Strip, and a site east of the town of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip.
