[ 19/01/2013 - 02:59 PM ]

RAFAH, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired at Palestinian homes to the east of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, on Saturday.

The PIC correspondent in Rafah said that soldiers stationed in military watchtowers and armored vehicles opened heavy machinegun fire at the Gaza international airport with no reports of casualties or damages reported.

The incident is the latest in a series of breaches of the calm agreement brokered by Egypt on 21/11/2012 that killed four Palestinians and wounded dozens. The violations also included the arrest of 30 fishermen at sea and blasting and seizing control of many fishing boats off the coasts of Gaza.
