GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire on a Palestinian teenager in the northern Gaza Strip on Saturday, injuring him moderately.

A spokesperson of the Gaza Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an that a 16-year-old boy was shot in his left foot by Israeli soldiers east of Beit Lahiya.

He was evacuated to Kamal Udwan Hospital in the northern Gaza Strip.

According to AFP, eyewitnesses said Israeli tanks and one bulldozer were near the border at the time.

An Israeli forces spokeswoman told AFP that "a suspect approached the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip," and that they opened fire after he ignored requests that he stop.

The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by the State of Israel since 2006.
