GAZA, -- Three Palestinian farmers were wounded on Saturday morning when Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired artillery shells at an agricultural area east of Beit Hanun to the north of the Gaza Strip.
Dr. Muawiya Hasanein, the director of ambulance services, said that the three were hit with shrapnel of the artillery shells fired by the IOF troops, describing their conditions as "moderate".
The IOF troops have recently escalated their attacks on farmers and citizens living near the border strip between Gaza and 1948 occupied Palestine, and are daily raiding those border areas.
