IOF Continues to Fire on Palestinian Civilians who were Collecting Rubble; One Person Injured


At app.
8:15am on Wednesday 2 June 2010, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF), positioned in the vicinity of Erez crossing at the northern border between Gaza and Israel, continued its sporadic fire on Palestinian civilians who were 100 meters away from the border fence near the industrial area.
At app.
4:30pm on the same day, the IOF opened fire again on  Palestinian civilians in that area.
As a result, Mohammed Zaki Abu Hamada, 34, who lives in Jabalia refugee camp, was shot in the right shoulder.
According to medical sources at Kamal Odwan Hospital, his injuries are described as moderate.
   The IOF has opened almost daily sporadic fire on Palestinian civilians who collect rubble to sell to brick factories, which recycles it into bricks.
This is the only source of bricks for construction that is available in the Gaza Strip, which suffers from an acute shortage of construction materials due the Israeli siege.
