Israeli troops opened fire, early on Sunday morning, on a number of Palestinian farmers in the southern besieged Gaza Strip.
Local Palestinian media sources and witnesses said that Israeli troops, stationed on watch towers, near the border fence with Khuza’a village, southeast of the coastal territory, opened fire with their machine guns indiscriminately towards a number of local farmers, while bending down in labor.
Sources added that the Israeli troops’ fire caused no causalities, but spread panic among farmers, forcing them to leave their farmlands immediately.
Israeli army fire on border areas are reported frequently, as Israel has created a buffer zone of about 300 meters width, along the eastern and northern border fence with Gaza.
