The attack took place east of Juhr ad-Deek town, in central Gaza. The shepherds said that they did not even approach the border fence.

Israeli soldiers repeatedly target Palestinian lands close to the border, and repeatedly opened fire at Palestinian workers, shepherds and farmers leading to dozens of casualties.

In other news, the Ansar Brigades, the armed wing of the Ahrar Movement, claimed responsibility for firing three homemade shells at the Zikim Israeli military base, across the border.

The Brigades said that the firing of the shells comes in retaliation for an earlier Israeli bombardment that targeted a residential tower in the area leading to two injuries and causing damage to the building.
