In Blockaded Gaza, Israeli Troops Kill Again

Israeli troops have killed one Palestinian and injured two others in the north sector of Gaza in yet another violation of a truce signed after Israel’s 22-day war on the strip.

Israeli forces opened fire on the three young men in the al-Atatra neighborhood, in the town of Beit Lahia on the northern edge of the Gaza Strip on Monday.

One of the wounded Palestinians later died in an Israeli clinic from excessive blood loss, medical sources told Press TV, adding that none of the three youths was known to be a member of any Palestinian faction.

An Israeli army spokeswoman has confirmed the incident, saying that three rockets were fired into southern Israel following the shooting.

Since the end of the 22-day war, the Israeli army has launched several cross border attacks on Gaza, rolling its tanks and bulldozers into the impoverished enclave, opening fire on villagers’ homes and flattening cultivated fields.

The deadly Israeli offensive into Gaza last December resulted in 1,500 Palestinian deaths and approximately 5,450 injuries. Most of the victims were civilians

The offensive also inflicted more than USD 1.6 billion of damage on Gaza’s already-stricken economy.
