IOF shelling wounds twins in central Gaza

[ 28/09/2009 - 10:20 AM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- A Palestinian teen and his twin sister were wounded on Monday when an Israeli army shell slammed into a field where they were working east of Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza Strip.
Medical sources said that Abdullah Al-Masdar, 17, was slightly injured in the blast of the shell while his twin sister was moderately wounded.
Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Sunday evening pounded agricultural areas and sewerage basins in northern Gaza but no casualties were reported.
Locals reported that IOF soldiers opened heavy machinegun fire at residential areas east of Beit Hanun, in northern Gaza, on Sunday night inflicting material damage.
The national resistance brigades, the armed wing of the democratic front for the liberation of Palestine, announced that its fighters targeted an IOF base north of the Strip on Sunday in retaliation to the IOF escalation against the Strip over the past few days and in reprisal to the violation of the Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.
