Israeli Army Tanks Open Fire on Gazans

Israeli army tanks opened fire on northern Gaza Strip, killing a Palestinian and wounding another near the town of Beit Lahia, Palestinian sources say.

According to witnesses living in the area, the army tanks fired four artillery shells at the area on Monday, DPA reported.

The head of Gaza emergency services, Muawiya Hassanein, also confirmed that a Palestinian was killed, saying they recovered the body of Mohammed Ghaban, 20, who was killed by shrapnel from Israeli shelling near Beit Lahia.

Medics at Kamal Odwan Hospital earlier said that one Palestinian, who had been critically wounded, was admitted to the hospital.

The Israeli military did not immediately comment on the attack.
