Palestinian quarry workers come under Israeli army gunfire in the central Gaza Strip

GAZA, Saturday, September 24, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today opened gunfire at Palestinians working at a quarry to the east of Deir el-Balah city, in the central Gaza Strip without causing any injury, according to WAFA correspondent.

In addition to opening fire, said the correspondent, the Israeli soldiers stationed along the eastern frontier of the Gaza Strip also shot tear gas canisters at the workers, forcing them to leave the area for safer grounds.

Israel prevents Palestinians from reaching their lands near the Israeli border fence as it tries to create a buffer zone at the expense of Palestinian lands and regularly opens fire at Palestinians who come close to the fence.

Earlier today, Israeli navy ships enforcing the 16-year-long sea blockade on the Gaza Strip and its two million population opened fire at fishermen sailing on the northern Gaza coast forcing them to cut their fishing expedition short and return to shore to avoid injury or damage to their boats.
