Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian shepherds in Khan Younis in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on Monday.

Witnesses told a Ma’an reporter that Israeli forces deployed in military watchtowers in eastern Khuzaa, in Khan Younis, opened fire towards Palestinian shepherds herding their sheep in nearby lands.

No injuries were reported.

The Israeli army also regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach the buffer zone, as the authorities have not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural and fishing sector of the blockaded coastal enclave, which has been under an Israeli air, land and sea blockade for nearly 12 years.
