At approximately 12:30 am on Saturday, 9 May 2015, Israeli
forces opened fire at a number of Palestinian farmers who were
approximately 300 meters away from the separation fence in the vicinity
of the Islamic Cemetery east of Jabaliya. As a result, two farmers were
injured. Al Mezan identified them as follows:
Raed Suliman Al Farra, 41, who sustained shrapnel wounds in the left eye, left hand, stomach, and chest;
Karam Salim Abu Hadaied, 34, sustained shrapnel wounds in the stomach and chest.
Medical sources at Shifa Hospital described their injuries as
moderate. In his affidavit to Al Mezan farmer Raed Al Farra stated that
he had gone with his niece Ibrahim and with Karam Abu Hadaied to harvest
barley on a piece of land owned by the Al Zaieni family. While they
were working with the tractor, Israeli forces opened fire on them.
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.
