Israeli Army Opens Fire at Farmlands in Southern Gaza

GAZA, January 14, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli army opened Wednesday fire at farmlands in southern Gaza Strip, the Anadolu Agency reported.

Soldiers stationed along the border to the east of Rafah opened heavy gunfire at farmlands on the environs of Rafah, destroying crops. No injuries were reported in the cross-border incident attack.

The army did not issue any immediate comments on the incident.

Israeli army opens fire routinely at Palestinian fishermen and farmlands along the Gaza border, clearly violating a ceasefire deal reached between Israeli and the Palestinian factions in Gaza.

The Israeli and Palestinian sides reached an Egypt-brokered open-ended ceasefire deal on 26 August to end the 51-day-long Israeli onslaught on the strip.

Over 2,200 Palestinians, overwhelmingly civilians, were killed and 11,000 others were injured during the onslaught that resulted in the demolition of thousands of houses.
