GAZA, (PIC)-- A Palestinian woman was killed and seven other civilians injured when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened artillery fire at central Gaza Strip at a late hour on Tuesday night.
Dr. Muwiaya Hasanein, the director of ambulance and emergency, told the PIC that Nima Al-Nabahin, 46, was killed in the shelling that targeted residential neighborhoods east of Breij refugee camp.
He said that the casualties were evacuated to the Shuhada Al-Aqsa hospital where their conditions were described as moderate to serious.
The shelling followed an IOF incursion into the area, Hasanein said.
IOF troops blocked arrival of ambulance vehicles to the scene of the incursion, which left the woman unattended and later arrived in hospital a dead body.
