IOF opens fire against Palestinian farmers with remote controlled machine guns

At aproximately 7.30 am, an international human rights observer alarmed by residents, witnessed another attack of the Israeli occupation forces against farmers. The Israelis were shooting from a watchtower on the Green Line, in the area between the villages Khouza'a and Faraheen, east of the City of Khan Younis. According to local Palestinians, the shooting was from a remote controlled machine gun, installed at the watch towers after the last massacres and was targeting farmers that were clearly beyond the 300 meters "buffer zone" that the Israelis are trying to impose.
