Five Palestinians wounded in IOF artillery shelling

GAZA, Two Palestinian men were seriously wounded in artillery shelling by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Tuesday evening southeast of Gaza city.

Adham Abu Salmiya, the military services coordinator, told the PIC that one of them was carried to Shifa hospital, adding that contacts were underway with the Red Cross to facilitate entry of ambulance vehicles to Juhr Al-Deek to evacuate the other casualty.

Security sources told the PIC reporter that three other citizens were injured in the area including one in serious condition.

IOF troops advanced 400 meters into the area earlier on Tuesday in six army tanks and four tractors and bulldozed land lots as the IOF artillery fired a number of shells.

IOF soldiers almost daily raid border areas in the Gaza Strip to bulldoze land amidst random firing.
