The wounded Palestinian, age 19, suffered moderate injuries and was moved to a local hospital in Beit Hanoun, in northern Gaza.

Eyewitnesses reported that Israeli soldiers, stationed near the northern border, opened fire at several Palestinian workers collecting scrap metal for recycling. The attack took place near the Agricultural College, north of Beit Hanoun.

Approximately ten days ago, two Palestinians have been injured by Israeli military fire as they worked in their lands, close to the border in Beit Lahia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Medical sources reported that Israeli soldiers, stationed across the eastern border of Beit Lahia, fired several rounds of live ammunition at Palestinian farmers in the area wounding two.

Spokesperson of the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Dr. Ashraf Al-Qudra, stated that one farmer suffered a moderate injury after being shot in the leg, while another farmer was mildly injured after a live round scraped his head.

The attack comes only four days after Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian farmer in the same area; the farmer, Mustafa Abu Jarad, 21, was shot by a live round in the head.
