Israeli fire injures 2 Palestinians
Israeli forces have attacked and injured two Palestinians who were trying to recover construction material near a border crossing in northern Gaza.
The fire targeted the victims near the Erez border crossing close to a security barrier on Saturday, Palestinian medic said. AFP reported.
More than 1.5 million people living in the Gaza Strip have been deprived of food, medicine, building material and other basic necessities for human survival as a result of an Israeli imposed blockade, which has been in place for more than three years.
The coastal sliver remains largely in ruins ever since the January 2008-December 2009 Israeli attacks, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians, causing a damage of more than USD 1.6 billion on the impoverished territory.
Israeli forces carry out deadly attacks into Gaza on a regular basis.
