At app. 2:30pm on Saturday 27 November 2010, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened fire at a group of Palestinian civilians as they were collecting scrap and rubble from the destroyed structures near the border fence between Gaza and Israel. The group was about 200 meters from the border fence near the Erez crossing in the North Gaza district when IOF fired at them. As a result, Khaild Ashraf Abu Sitta, 21, who is a resident of Beit Lahiya, was injured in the left leg. Medical sources at Kamal Odwan Hospital described his injuries as light.According to Al Mezan's field investigations, the civilians carried Abu Sitta on a donkey driven cart to the Palestinian Liaison Office at Erez crossing because the area of attack is close to the border fence and roads are unpaved and ambulances can't reach there.
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.
