Medical workers in the Gaza Strip said Saturday that Israeli forces killed a Palestinian farmer in the center of the impoverished, under-siege coastal sliver.
Sami Abu Khousa, 40, was killed near the Al-Bureij refugee camp early on Saturday. Medical sources said that he died after being hit by a shell.
Following its 22-day war against Gaza in late 2008, Tel Aviv has repeatedly attacked the strip despite putting in place a unilateral ceasefire.
Gaza has been under Israel’s military siege since 2007.
