Soldiers disperse protest in north Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces opened fire during a protest in Gaza early Tuesday, activists said.

There were no injuries in the incident in Beit Hanoun, along the border with Israel, the coordinator for the demonstration against Israel's no-go zone, Saber Zaanin, explained.

Residents walk toward the no-go zone each Tuesday demanding access to their farmland. Israel's army says it considers the area a combat zone and frequently opens fire.
