IOF Opens Fire at Palestinian Bird Hunters near Erez Crossing


At approximately 9:00 on Wednesday, 23 November 2011, Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) opened fire at Palestinian bird hunters in Netzarim, the evacuated settlement northwest of Erez crossing. The victims were hunting birds approximately 300 metres away from the northern border fence when the IOF opened fire at them. No casualties or injuries were reported but the incident scared the hunters and they left their work activities immediately.
