IOF Open Fire at Palestinian Farmers east of Jabalia


At app. 4:45pm on Saturday 13 February 2010, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) positioned at the eastern separation fence opened fire at Palestinian farmers who were in their agricultural lands east of the 'Islamic Martyrs Cemetery' east of Jabalia, 400 meter away from the separation fence. No casualties  or injuries were reported.  The fire continued for five minutes and farmers left their lands afraid of fire. It's worth mentioning that the IOF has increased its attacks on Palestinians near the Gaza Strip's eastern and northern borders with Israel; an area inside Gaza that IOF has declared as a security 'buffer zone'.
