GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces opened fire and injured a Palestinian man east of Jabaliya on Thursday, medics said.

Wahid al-Fasis, 20, was shot in the Tal Abu Safayeh area and transferred to Awdeh hospital, medics said.

An Israeli army spokesman said forces fired "in accordance with the rules of engagement" after a group of Palestinians approached a border fence "acting violently" and tried to damage it.

Earlier Israeli military vehicles crossed near the al-Qarara town northeast of Khan Younis on Thursday in a new breach of the Gaza ceasefire, a Ma’an reporter said.

Two military bulldozers crossed 200 meters inside agriculture lands but did not open fire.

An army spokesman confirmed "routine IDF activity" in the area.

On Wednesday Israeli forces shot and injured seven Palestinians near the border in the central Gaza Strip, medics said.

Seven people were shot at east of al-Maghazi and al-Bureij refugee camps and transferred to the al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital. One man sustained serious injuries, medical officials told Ma'an.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said "rioters" damaged the border fence and tried to enter Israel. She said soldiers acted to distance them "according to the rules of engagement" which can include opening fire.

Earlier, 27-year-old Hassan Ahmad Nseir was shot by Israeli forces near Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip while collecting iron and gravel, medics told Ma'an.

Israel had barred Palestinians from coming within hundreds of meters of the border, but agreed to ease curbs on Gaza in a ceasefire reached Nov. 21 to end its eight-day war on the enclave.

I won my private pool! I bet myself yesterday that Israel would violate her own ceasefire for what is it now? The fifth day running? I picked one. She would shoot another Palestinian today -- but only one. Bingo.

Yet again Israel breaks the ceasefire . . .and will no doubt retaliate very quickly if Hamas fires back - and then Israel will say "Look, there was a cease-fire and Hamas has broken it . .terrorists . . . .can't be trusted. . ." and all the BS they give us every time they want a war. And the western countries sagely nod their head "yes, Israel is entitled to defend it self". No word for Gaza being entitled to defend itself. It would be funny if it wasn't so bloody tragic.

Congrats. Colin - but it was a very easy win. The odds were about 100 to 1 on.
