GAZA, (PIC)-- Seven Palestinians were wounded on Friday evening when Israeli occupation soldiers opened at Palestinians in two different areas in the northern Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian sources.

A local journalist said that the IOF opened machinegun fire at farmers in two different areas in the northern Gaza Strip. The first was to the east of Martyrs Cemetery east of Jabalya, resulting in the injury of five Palestinians. The other area in which Palestinian farmers came under IOF fire was east of Beit Hanoun, where two people were wounded.

Dr. Ashraf Qudra, spokesman for the Ministry of Health, told PIC reporter that the five citizens wounded east of Martyrs Cemetery sustained moderate injuries.

These incident are added to numerous IOF breaches of the truce agreement reached between Palestinian resistance and the Israeli occupation late November last year. These breaches resulted in the killing of 4 Palestinians and the injury of dozens.
