Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raided southern Gaza Strip areas on Thursday morning and fired at farmers forcing them to abandon working in their fields. 

A field observer told Quds Press that IOF soldiers advanced to the east of Qarara town, to the north east of Khan Younis, and bulldozed land while opening intensive fire at farmers. 

He said that soldiers in military watchtowers also opened machinegun fire at Palestinian houses in the same area. 

Meanwhile, Israeli gunboats opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats along the coasts of Gaza and blocked fishermen from fishing, fishermen said. 

The incidents posed as another breach of the calm agreement reached under Egyptian patronage almost a year ago.
