Palestinian injured by Israeli gunfire in southern Gaza Strip

GAZA, Thursday, September 2, 2021 (WAFA) – A Palestinian was today injured by Israeli military gunfire to the east of Absan al-Kabeera town, east of Khan Younis city in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, according to WAFA correspondent.

He reported medical sources saying that Israeli forces, stationed along the borderline in fortified positions and military vehicles, east of the town, opened fire at a youth in his 20s, hitting him with an “explosive” bullet in his left thigh.

The casualty was rushed to Nasser Hospital in Khan Younes, where medics described his condition as moderate.

Israeli forces deliberately target Palestinians and farmers trying to access their lands and prevent them from planting and plowing it.

Explosive rounds were banned internationally under the 1899 Hague Convention because of the “unnecessary injury and suffering caused from large bullet wounds.”
