Israeli forces stationed on the border with the Gaza Strip opened fire at Palestinian farmers working in their lands near the border today, forcing them to leave the area, the Palestinian news agency WAFA reported

Israeli occupation soldiers, stationed at the military watchtowers overlooking the border area east of Gaza City, fired several rounds of live bullets and teargas at the farmers, forcing them to leave the area to avoid being shot.

No injuries were reported.

Israel does not allow Palestinians to reach their lands along the Gaza border with Israel and often infiltrate the borders to either destroy the land and level it or to build dirt mounds causing serious damage to fertile agricultural land.

The Israeli occupation army regularly opens fire at people near the border fence with Gaza, including farmers attending to their land, in order to keep them as far from the border as possible.

    • I hope the new administration can get you the access to mental health services that you obviously desperately need.

  1. The way to deal with neo-Nazi Israel is to treat Israel with disdain and shun all those that support its crimes. Eventually this will force Israel to start obeying the law and return to its legally defined 1948 borders and stop killing Palestinians men women and children and thereby start acting less like a rogue criminal terrorist state that routinely commits war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and Apartheid in order to steal land and resources belonging to other countries.

    • Calm down, Mohammed. You might as well suggest that China withdraw from Tibet. Or Russia withdraw from Crimea, Or the US and Canada withdraw from North America.

      They fought over it (were attacked over those 1948 borders, actually) WON the fight, it’s ALL THEIRS NOW.
