GAZA, (PIC)– The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) opened fire Sunday morning at Palestinian farmers in central Gaza Strip. No casualties were reported during the attack.
Eyewitnesses reported that the IOF soldiers stationed at the border areas near al-Maghazi refugee camp in Deir al-Balah city opened gunfire at a group of Palestinian farmers and houses in the area.
The attack was carried out at the same time as Israeli army vehicles patrolled the borderline and drones hovered over the territory.
The armed attack forced the farmers to leave their agricultural lands.
Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes carried out mock raids on the Gaza Strip, spreading fear of imminent air strikes among the residents.
Loud explosions were heard across the Gaza Strip after Israeli F-16 jet fighters launched mock raids over the enclave.
The attack is another episode in Israel’s violations of the Cairo-brokered ceasefire accord signed on August 26, 2014, in the wake of a large-scale military offensive on the coastal enclave.
