At approximately 17:20 on Saturday 3 December 2011, Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) opened sporadic fire at a group of Palestinian shepherds who were herding animals on land near the Gaza International Airport in the Ash-Shawka village, east of Rafah. No casualties or injuries were reported, but the incident scared the shepherds and forced them to abandon their work.
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.
