GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened heavy machine gun fire at Palestinian farmers while tending to their lands north of the Gaza Strip on Saturday, local sources reported.
A source in the area told Quds Press that the IOF soldiers fired an artillery shell then opened machineguns at the farmers east of Jabaliya in northern Gaza Strip.
Farmers were forced to abandon their lands due to the heavy gunfire that was coupled with intensified flights for IOF warplanes.
A number of Palestinian citizens were wounded on Friday night when the IOF troops fired a projectile at them east of Gaza city.
