Israeli forces shoot, injure 3 Palestinians in Gaza

00:00 Apr 3 2015 east of Khan Younis

GAZA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces injured three Palestinians after opening fire on them from the Gazan border east of Khan Younis on Friday.

Witnesses said the three were shot at in the al-Sanati area east of Khan Younis.

One was hit in their lower extremities while the injuries of the other two are not yet known.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incident.

Israeli forces have repeatedly opened fire on Palestinian civilians near the border since the ceasefire agreement signed Aug. 26, 2014 that ended a devastating 50-day war between Israel and Hamas.

In February alone, there were a total of 26 incidents of shootings, incursions into the Strip, and arrests, according to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights.

The attacks come despite Israeli promises at the end of the ceasefire to ease restrictions on Palestinian access to the border region near the "security buffer zone."
