Palestinian farmer injured by Israeli gunfire at Gaza border

GAZA, Sunday, September 5, 2021 (WAFA) – A Palestinian farmer sustained injuries on Sunday afternoon after he was shot by Israeli occupation soldiers while he was working in his own farm in the village of Juhor ad-Dik, south of Gaza City.

WAFA correspondent said that Israeli soldiers, stationed in watchtowers along the border with the Gaza Strip, opened gunfire and injured the farmer while he was working in his own farm, which is adjacent to the border with the occupying state of Israel.

Israel does not allow Palestinians to be within 300 meters from the borders, which it unilaterally considers as a buffer zone, and often opens fire at the farmers and whoever reaches those areas.

Attacks by Israeli forces on Palestinian fishermen and farmers in Gaza are almost a daily occurrence, and are rarely prosecuted by Israeli official authorities.
