Israeli forces injure young Palestinian girl in Gaza

An Israeli soldier
A young Palestinian girl has been shot and injured by Israeli soldiers in the impoverished southern Gaza Strip.
The incident took place in the city of Khan Yunis on Wednesday.

No further details have so far been reported on the occurrence.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces opened fire on a Palestinian farmer in Khan Yunis on Tuesday. He was shot in the thigh.

Gaza has been blockaded by the Israeli regime since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standards of living and has triggered unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.

The oppressive regime also denies the 1.5 million Gazans their basic rights, including the freedom of movement and the right to decent living, work, health and education.

Moreover, Defense for Children International documented 14 cases between March and October 2010 of Palestinian youths under the age of 18 who were shot by Israeli forces while collecting gravel in the border zone.

The youngest of these children was 13 and the oldest was reportedly 17.
