Jewish settler fires at Palestinian workers wounding one of them

QALQILIA, (PIC)– A 21-year-old Palestinian worker from Azun Atma village was wounded in his leg when an Israeli settler opened fire at a group of workers in Qalqilia on Tuesday.

Local sources said that the guard of Oranit settlement, established on the village land, indiscriminately opened machinegun fire at a group of workers while trying to cross into 1948 occupied land.

They said that the workers were trying to cross through an unfinished section of the racist, separation wall when the guard fired at them and injured Abdullah Al-Barri, 21, in his leg.

Hundreds of workers try to cross into 1948 occupied land through holes or incomplete sections of the separation wall to look for jobs.


Palestinian youth seriously wounded in IOF shooting

KHAN YOUNIS, (PIC)– A Palestinian young man was seriously wounded at noon Monday at the hands of Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stationed east of Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip.

Dr. Ashraf Al-Qudra, the health ministry’s spokesman, told the PIC reporter that the 21-year-old youth was seriously wounded in the shooting.

He said that the youth was hit with a bullet in his chest while working in his field.

Qudra said that the youth was taken to the European hospital where his condition was described as critical.

IOF soldiers target farmers working near the security fence in a bid to terrorize them away from their land after the recent calm agreement allowed them to return to their fields.


IOF soldiers raid central Gaza

DEIR AL-BALAH, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raided eastern Deir Al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning.

Local sources told the PIC reporter that the soldiers escorted six bulldozers that combed and bulldozed land in the area.

IOF soldiers routinely raid border areas in the coastal enclave in violation of the calm agreement concluded in Cairo last November.
