Israeli forces on Wednesday shot and injured a Palestinian man near the fence separating besieged Gaza Strip from Israel, near Khan Younis, reported WAFA correspondent.

Israeli forces stationed at Gaza’s eastern fence opened fire towards a group of Palestinians near the town of Khuzaa, injuring one.

The man was moved to the European hospital, where sources confirmed that he is in moderate condition.

Israeli forces frequently shoot at farmers and other civilians inside the Gaza Strip if they approach large swathes of land near the fence, which the Israeli military has deemed as a buffer zone off Limit to Palestinians.

Gaza, with a population of 2 million, has been under a hermetic Israeli siege since 2006, when the Palestinian group Hamas won the democratic legislative elections in occupied Palestine.

Since then, Israel has carried out numerous bombing campaigns and several major wars, that resulted in the death of thousands of people.
