Palestinian worker hurt by Israeli gunfire

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian worker has been injured by Israeli gunfire in the north of the Gaza Strip, local residents said Wednesday.

The 19-year-old worker was collecting stone aggregates when Israeli forces opened fire toward him, injuring his left leg, in the northern Bedouin village in Beit Lahiya, locals said.

He was taken to Kamal Adwan Hospital where doctors said his injuries were moderate.

Israel's army did not immediately return a call late Wednesday.
