Gaza farmers attacked by Israeli soldiers while attending to their borderlands, forced to leave the area

KHAN YOUNIS, Saturday, January 14, 2023 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today fired tear gas canisters at Palestinian farmers attending to their lands east of Khan Younis in the south of the Gaza Strip and forced them to leave the area, reported WAFA correspondent.

He said that soldiers stationed on the Israeli side of the border shot gunfire in the direction of the farmers and fired tear gas canisters at them causing several suffocation cases.

The farmers left the area in a hurry to avoid being shot, said the correspondent.

Palestinians who own land near the border fence with Israel always take a risk when they try to reach their land to cultivate it as almost always the soldiers would open fire at them and force them to leave the area.
