At app. 6pm on Tuesday 18 May 2010, Hasan Thabit Abu Frhana, 16, was injured when an unknown device exploded. He was injured by shrapnel in the head, abdomen, and limbs. Hasan, his father and some of his family members were harvesting wheat in an agricultural land that is located 250 meters away from the separation fence in the Al Faraheen neighborhood, east Abbsan village, east of Khan Younis. Abu Frhana received first aid at Al Karama Military Hospital. Then he was referred to the European Gaza Hospital. His medical condition is described as moderate. It worth mentioning that the area where the explosion took place had been invaded and shelled several times by the Israeli occupation forces.
This is a blog about Gaza farmers, workers and all the civilian population living in Gaza Strip rural communities along the Green Line, suffering from daily Israeli attacks and resisting the implementation of a so called "buffer zone" by the Israeli Occupation Forces.
Note: this blog is focusing on Israeli attacks on civilians inside or around the so called "buffer zone". Attacks on resistance fighters, or attacks, usually airstrikes on civilians further inside the Gaza Strip, or along the Egypt border (apart from the eastern areas such as Al Shoka or the airport area) are usually not mentioned.
