IOF Open Fire at Palestinian Farmers east of Jabalia


At app. 5:5pm on Saturday 20 February 2010, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) positioned at the northern separation fence opened fire on Palestinian farmers who were planting their lands in the agricultural area in the east of Jabalia, 400 meters away from the separation fence.  No casualties or injuries were reported, but farmers were terrified and left the area. The IOF continue enforcing the 'security buffer zone' and attacks are increasing on Palestinians near the Gaza Strip's eastern and northern borders with Israel
