At app. 9:15am on Thursday 8 July 2010, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF), positioned at the northern separation fence between Gaza and Israel, continued their sporadic fire on Palestinian civilians. The Palestinian civilians were 500 meters away from the border fence near the Eli Sinai evacuated settlement northwest of Beit Lahyia, in North Gaza District. As a result, Nidal Sha'ban Al Husomi, 25, who lives in Beit Hanoun was shot in the right leg. According to medical sources at Kamal Odwan Hospital, his injuries are described as moderate.
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.
