Al Mezan

At approximately 12:15pm on Saturday 12 February 2011, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened fire at a group of Palestinian civilians as they were collecting scrap and rubble from destroyed structures near the border fence between Gaza and Israel. The group was about 200 meters from the border fence near the evacuated settlement Eli Sinai northwest of Beit Lahyia, in the North Gaza district when IOF fired at them. As a result, Mahran Rezeq Tanboura, 24, was injured in the left knee. Medical sources at Kamal Odwan Hospital described his injury as moderate, as the bullet exited from the knee.
