GAZA, Monday, February 8, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation army attacked this morning Palestinian farmers working in their lands in the north and south of the Gaza Strip and forced them to leave the area, reported WAFA correspondent.
He said that Israeli soldiers stationed at the borders east of Gaza City opened fire and shot smoke grenades at farmers working on their lands close to the borders east of Zaytoun neighborhood, who were forced to leave their land to avoid being harmed.
In the south of the Gaza Strip, soldiers opened fire with their automatic rifles at farmers east of Khan Yunis as they were working on their border area lands and at shepherds in the area forcing them to leave it without anyone being hurt, said WAFA correspondent.
Israel does not allow Palestinians to be within 300 meters from the borders, which it unilaterally declared as a buffer zone, and often opens fire at the farmers and whoever reaches those areas.
