Israeli forces open fire at farmers in Gaza

Israeli forces stationed at the eastern borders of Gaza city yesterday opened fire on Palestinian farmers, Quds Press reported.

A field monitor told Quds Press that the Israeli forces opened fire on farmers who were working in their farms in the Johor Addik neighbourhood, in eastern Gaza City.

They continued to shoot at the farmers forcing them to seek shelter, the observer said. No casualties were reported.

This is one in a long series of Israeli violations of the ceasefire reached on 26 August, 2014, that ended the 51-day long Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip.

Observers counted more than 400 Israeli breaches, including shooting at the farmers on the eastern borders of Gaza and targeting fishermen on the western side of the Strip.
