Ziyad Haddad, 23, was working on his land when Israeli troops from a nearby military post opened fire at him, witnesses told media. Medical sources announced that Haddad sustained moderate wounds after being hit with multiple rounds in his legs.

The attack came a day after a number of Israeli airstrikes in northern Gaza, which Israeli authorities claim were in response to Palestinian homemade shells fired across the border between Gaza and Israel, although no Palestinian resistance groups would confirm that any shells had been fired.

Beit Hanoun was one of the hardest-hit areas of Israel's January invasion into Gaza, with whole neighborhoods flattened by Israeli air and ground strikes. Palestinian farmers, trying to recover some of their lost crops, have been repeatedly targeted by Israeli forces while working their land.

RAFAH, (PIC)-- A Palestinian medical source told the PIC reporter on Wednesday that a Palestinian citizen was moderately wounded when IOF troops bombed his house east of Beit Hanoun town in the Gaza Strip.

Israel had been carrying out a series of air raid since last night on different areas in Gaza which led to the injury of four citizens.

Israeli air raids were also carried out at night Tuesday on the Palestinian-Egyptian borders, south of Gaza, without any reported injuries and there are expectations that there will be more aerial attacks.

In retaliation to these Israeli military attacks, Al-Aqsa Brigades and the popular resistance committees claimed responsibility for firing three mortar shells on the Israeli Moghain military post, east of Al-Maghazi refugee camp.
