GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were injured after Israeli artillery hit the central Gaza Strip on Sunday, a Palestinian official said.

Israeli forces hit an area east of al-Maghazi refugee camp with an artillery shelling, Gaza's Ministry of Health spokesman said.

Ashraf al-Qidra said two Palestinians suffered from burns as a result of the shelling, and were taken to Shuhada al-Aqsa hospital in moderate condition.

An Israeli army spokesman said he was not familiar with the incident.

The shelling comes days after an upheaval of violence in the Strip made international headlines. On Tuesday, Israeli airstrikes killed a 3-year-old Palestinian girl and injured several others after a Palestinian sniper killed an Israeli Civil Defense employee working at the border.

On Thursday, two other Palestinians were injured in Israeli airstrikes, after two rockets fired from Gaza hit open Israeli areas, causing no injuries or damage.

An Egyptian mediated ceasefire agreement was reached in November 2012 between Palestinian factions and Israel to end over a week of fighting which left over 170 Palestinians dead and thousands injured. Six Israelis were also killed during the fighting.

Since the agreement, Israeli forces have shot dozens of Gazans in border areas, and have launched frequent incursions.

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

If Israel's intent was to kill civilians, then the "Israeli artillery in Gaza" could have far more easily targeted the much larger refugee camp itself, instead of the far smaller rocket-launching facility, and since THE "TWO PALESTINIANS injured" were at the rocket-launching facility, they WERE NOT CIVILIANS.

Tibi seems to completely overlook the fact our government is violating cease fire agreements. Blatantly doing what they want while expecting peace and compliance from their perceived "enemies." Zionism is putting genuine Jews as risk every day in the pursuit of their political/economic ideals and it needs to stop.
