At approximately 9:30am on Tuesday 19 October 2010, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened fire at Palestinian civilians who were collecting scrap and rubble from the destroyed structures near the Erez Crossing in the north of the Gaza Strip. The shooting lasted for about ten minutes. No casualties or injuries were reported but the workers were terrified and left the area.
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.
