‘Israeli’ Occupation Forces shot and wounded a Palestinian farmer.


Gaza City — Abasan , Khan Younis City , on Tuesday ‘Israeli’ Occupation Forces shot and wounded an unarmed 22 year old Palestinian farmer, Mohammed Qdeih, from behind.


Earlier Mohamed and nine others went out to their fields in the early afternoon, walking approximately 250 meters from the ‘ Israeli ‘ electric border fence.


Within minutes, two heavily armed ‘Israeli’ military jeeps rushed to the security fence. They issued a warning for the farmers and residents to leave the area and shortly thereafter the Palestinians, intimidated by the heavy military presence, began to head back to the village of Abasan.


The ‘ Israeli’ soldiers were not satisfied and opened fire, piercing Mohamed’s right arm from the backside. ‘Israeli’ occupation forces continued to shoot rounds of live ammunition, while Mohamed and the others frantically evacuated and waited for an ambulance.


Another young Palestinian, 19, was shot yesterday near the border in Jabaliya
