Israeli forces, deployed on the southern Gaza border, shot and injured two young Palestinian men east of Khuzaa on Monday evening, medics told Ma’an.
The men were left bleeding for a quarter of an hour after they were shot before they were able to call an ambulance.
Israeli forces were reported to have opened fire intermittently on Palestinian civilians near the border.
Israeli forces have repeatedly opened fire on Gazans since the ceasefire agreement signed Aug. 26, 2014 that ended last summer’s devastating 50-day war between Israel and Hamas.
In May alone, there were a total of 51 incidents of shootings, incursions into the coastal enclave, and arrests, according to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights.
This included 41 shootings, which left nine injured, including one minor.
The attacks come despite Israeli promises at the end of the ceasefire to ease restrictions on Palestinian access to the border region near the Israeli “security buffer zone.”
