Gazan youths torch Israeli military post near border fence
A group of Palestinian youths on Sunday were able to breach the Israeli border fence east of Khan Younis city in southern Gaza and set fire to Israeli military equipment.
Local sources told the PIC reporter that the youths fled back into the Gaza Strip after setting the Israeli army site alight.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing Israeli soldiers and vehicles rushing to the place and combing the area.
This is the third time in less than two weeks that Gaza youths have managed to infiltrate the Israeli border area and burn military posts.
In another context, train travel was suspended on Sunday for several hours between Ashkelon and Netivot in the 1948 occupied Palestine after massive fires erupted in settler farmlands neighboring the Gaza Strip by flaming kites launched from the enclave.
A Palestinian youth was injured on Sunday evening after being shot by the Israeli occupation forces stationed at the border fence east of Khuza’a town in southern Gaza.
The young man, who was standing close to the Great Return March camps, was transferred to the hospital, according to the PIC reporter.
