Israeli Tanks Fire on Gaza Strip, 7 Injured

Seven people were injured on Thursday when Israeli forces fired artillery rounds at the northern and eastern Gaza Strip, medics said.

Gaza medical spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya told Ma’an that two people were seriously wounded and five moderately injured when Israeli forces opened fire on Beit Lahiya, north Gaza, and east of Gaza City.

Most of the victims were farmers, Abu Salmiya said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said forces opened fire toward "several suspects approaching the security fence."

She said no hit was identified.

An Israeli army spokesman later added that "tank shells were fired towards the terrorists," near the Karni crossing east of Gaza City.

Meanwhile, witnesses told Ma’an that Israeli bulldozers entered the Gaza Strip on Thursday east of Khan Younis in southern Gaza.
