At approximately 7:50am on Monday 7 February 2011, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened fire at Palestinian farmers who were in their field near the separation fence between Gaza Strip and Israel. The farmers were in the Al Qatbaniya area, east of Beit Hanoun, when IOF opened fire at them. No casualties or injuries were reported, but farmers were terrified and abandoned their farms.
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.
