GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A rocket struck southern Israel on Friday afternoon after Israeli forces opened fire and shot a Palestinian youth near the border in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli soldiers shot and injured a Palestinian youth along the border fence east of Deir al-Balah. The army, however, said that they only shot after fire was opened towards Israeli forces in the area.

Witnesses told Ma'an that an Israeli tank that was deployed near the border fence opened fire at a group of Palestinians in the area, hitting the youth.

He was taken to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah for treatment, and was said to be in a moderate condition.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that "fire was opened" at Israeli troops near the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip, and that Israeli forces "fired towards the source of the shooting in response."

Soon after, a rocket from Gaza hit the Shaar HaNegev region of southern Israel, landing in an open area without causing any injuries.

They kept on pushing the Palestinians in Gaza to retaliate for the killing and wounding youths to launch rockets and they did. In reality it doesn't pay off for the Palestinians to refrain from launching any rockets, Israel will give them an excuse to launch them if they don't. By now everyone should know Israel intention in the occupy territories, to pressure the Palestinians to leave. Palestinians were there before the Hebrew arrived in the Holy land, and they here to stay.

Another senseless shooting.. By a well protected jew sniper.. Against an unarmed civilian.. This is the trap... Exactly what the isrealies have been waiting for.. "Look" they will now cry... "We have been mercilessly attacked" And the crying, wounded nation will have no choice but to harshly retaliate.. Such a repulsive, obscene society..

Everything the Occupied Palestinians have ever done,since berfore 1948 Israel,is RETALIATE against Zionist &Israel harassment, violence,attacks &hate.
Look at ANY Palestinian action.It's always rightful retaliation &resistance against Zionist Israeli BULLYING! Every action by Palestinians is the EFFECT following the Israeli MILITARIST cause!

Just the facts Joe and Kathy. Palestinians plant explosive devices along the fence in an effort to kill and injure Israelis. Israel has warned Palestinians not to approach the fence or be in the immediate vicinity. The threat is not imaginary. An Israeli military vehicle was hit by such an explosive device shortly before the Palestinian was shot. Then Palestinians followed up their previous attack with firing of missiles.

Comment JNS-5 is correct about "You being the most misinformed people on the planet", and Rondo-6 about the fact, where: -1- ISRAEL "keeps on PUSHING the Palestinians in Gaza to" PEACE, but Hamas prefers terrorism, "armed resistance", abductions, with brief "hudna" truces only, just to prepare for more of the former, and -2- There is Nothing "Senseless" About Defending A Border Fence, where shootings, mortars, bombings, & abductions have been common, and which remain a Hamas top priority !!

Israel has no declared borders. Israel is anywhere there is a zionist with a gun. The purpose of that so called "border fence" is to keep Palestinians from going back to the homes and properties that were stolen from them by Europeans, Americans, and Russians. It should be blown the hell up.
