They said the man was moderately injured when soldiers – stationed on the fence separating besieged Gaza from Israel – opened fire at him for no apparent reason. He was rushed to the hospital for treatment.
Israeli soldiers routinely target Palestinian civilians and farmers in and near the buffer zone.
