Israeli forces shoot, injure Palestinian along Gaza borders

GAZA, A Palestinian Wednesday was shot and injured by Israeli forces stationed along the Gaza borders to the east of Gaza city, said sources.

Israeli forces stationed along the borders with Israel opened fire on a group of Palestinians who allegedly approached the border fence, shooting and injuring one in the thigh.

The injured whose identity remains unknown until the moment was transferred to hospital for medical treatment.

Israel has imposed a buffer zone inside the Gaza Strip along their common borders preventing Palestinians from reaching their lands near the border fence. It regularly opens fire at anyone who enters that buffer zone.

In a fact sheet about Israeli attacks on border areas and their consequences, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) said, preventing Palestinians from accessing their lands and fishing areas violates numerous provisions of international human rights law, including the right to work, the right to an adequate standard of living, and the right to the highest attainable standard of health.’
