Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian land to the east of Gaza City, while at the same time Israeli naval forces attacked fishermen off the coast of Beit Lahia in the northern part of the besieged enclave on Thursday morning.

Witnesses told Ma’an that Israeli forces stationed behind the border fence between Gaza and Israel opened live fire at Palestinian farmers. No injuries were reported.
Witnesses also told Ma’an that Israeli forces opened live fire at fishermen off the coast of Beit Lahiya, without any injuries being reported. 

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an she would look into reports.
