GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian farmer was shot and injured by Israeli fire Sunday while he was picking watermelons in Abu Safiyeh neighborhood east of Jabalia, northern Gaza, medics told Ma'an.

Ahmad Hamdin, 21, sustained an injury to his thigh and was evacuated to the Kamal Udwan Hospital in Jabalia, northern Gaza, medics said.

In response to a request for comment, the Israeli army confirmed the injury and said several Palestinians had "attempted to damage" the border fence between Gaza and Israel.

The army said it had asked them to stop approaching the fence, then opened fire at "their lower extremities, identifying a hit."

Tohar haneshek! Atah MeTachat Degel Shachor! It's the farmer's land, you trigger-happy morons! The Israel "fence",is illegal. Did he have a WEAPON in his hand,beside a water-melon &the tool to cut them? Or is it just the usual Israeli human-target practice at the femoral-artery shooting-range,for fun? Jeez Israel! No wonder Israel's only "allies" left,are aging ideological,stupid politicians & a minority of religious maniacs!

France, Britain, US, Italy and Germany all defend the israels right to self defense from offensive terrorist melons. Maybe we can have Guido Westerfelt explain how terrorist melons destroyed his country.

"Put down the melon. Step away from the fence. Step AWAY from the fence."

Even without visiting the Gaza-Israel Border Fence, Everyone that has seen Watermelons growing, knows that Nowhere do they grow on Fences, so You Should Stop PRINTING such NONSENSE as "picking watermelons" and "approaching the fence".

# 3 - "They were terror melons" - well disguised terror melons. Everyone else thought they were just melons.

Actually, reading the report again, there is a clear internal inconsistency in what the army said. On the one hand, the farmers had "attempted to damage" the border fence - on the other hand, they were asked to "stop approaching the fence" . . . Perhaps Brian Cohen can tell us what really happened?

Show where the several Palestinians are damaging the illegal fence? I only see a trigger happy soldier. Justice will come one day and it will be the sweetest thing. Just keep believing in El Shaddia who gave this land to Abram's descendants. He will bring justice to the land, He has His day, and it is called The Judgement day of God.

(6) Get your facts right. No where did the article state that they were picking melons of the fence. It said picking melons in Abu Safiyeh. It was the Israeli soldiers who were accusing them of approaching the fence to damage it. And as usual no evidence, except the photo of the trigger happy soldier.
