Eyewitnesses told Quds Press that that Israeli soldiers opened machinegun fire from watchtowers near Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing, north of Gaza, at cultivated plots of lands, which caused one of the farmers there to suffer a bullet injury. Medical sources affirmed that a farmer received treatment for a bullet injury in one of his legs. In a separate incident, seven Palestinian young men on Friday afternoon suffered bullet injuries during clashes with Israeli soldiers in an eastern border area in Gaza, in the 17th week of al-Quds intifada (uprising).
