At app. 6am on Wednesday 25 August 2010, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF), positioned at the northern separation fence between Gaza and Israel, opened fire on Palestinian civilians who were 300 meters from the border fence in the As-Siafa area on the beach of Beit Lahyia town, in North Gaza district. As a result, Mahmoud Ramadan Subeh, 19, who lives in Beit Lahyia was injured. According to medical sources at Kamal Odwan Hospital, his injury was light. Many Palestinian civilians are frequently exposed to IOF fire while collecting rubble from the destroyed structures near the border between Gaza and Israel; including the evacuated settlements in North Gaza district.
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.
