At approximately 13:00 pm on Thursday 17 February 2011, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened fire at a group of Palestinian civilians as they were collecting scrap materials and rubble from the destroyed structures west of Karni Crossing, east of Al Sheja'iya neighborhood in the east of Gaza city. As a result, Mustafa Khader Al Manasra, 17, and Waleed Khalil Jendea, 19, were injured, both in their right legs. Medical sources described their injuries as moderate.
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.
