GAZA, (PIC)-- A Palestinian worker was injured on Sunday morning while collecting gravel from destroyed buildings north of the Gaza Strip, medical sources said.
Adham Abu Salmiya, the spokesman for medical services, told the PIC that the 21-year-old youth was hit with a bullet in his left foot.
The young man was hospitalized in moderate condition, he added.
IOF soldiers still insist on targeting unarmed citizens and workers along the Gaza borders bringing the number of casualties in similar incidents to 110.
Palestinian resistance factions have agreed on retaining calm along the borders of Gaza to ward off any possible Israeli war on the Palestinian people, but apparently the IOF does not wish for such calm to prevail.

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – A young Palestinian man was shot and injured by Israeli forces Sunday in the northern Gaza Strip, medics said.
The victim, who was collecting stone aggregates, was identified by medical officials as 21-year-old Ramadan Subih.
Subih received a gunshot wound to the left leg while working in Beit Lahiya and was evacuated to hospital, the officials said.
An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the use of gunfire but denied knowledge of any injuries.
Forces along the border identified a number of Palestinians approaching and ordered them to stop, she said, adding that they first fired warning shots in the air and not directly at the individuals.
