GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man near Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday.

Spokesman for the Gaza Strip Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra said that a 24-year-old man was shot by Israeli forces east of Jabaliya and was subsequently transferred to Kamal Adwan Hospital.

Al-Qidra described the injuries sustained by the man as "moderate."

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that "a crowd of Palestinians gathered in a prohibited area," and as a result "soldiers tried to distance them using riot dispersal means and warning shots."

She added that soldiers then opened fire toward the lower extremities of a "main instigator" and identified a hit.

Separately, Israeli forces opened fire on a demonstration around noon near southeast of Gaza City that had been called for in support of the Al-Aqsa mosque compound by the coalition "Palestine Youth Coalition."

So, again... Continuing unabated... isreali snipers target unarmed civilians... From their protected towers.. Sniping.. Sniping... Every day brings news of more injuries.. Perhaps the heavily armed soldier felt threatened? Unlikely.. More believable, is that he was bored.. Nothing to do all day.. So he just fired a few rounds into a crowd.. Such a sick and perverted society..
