IMEMC, 2/13/14 – Palestinian medical sources have reported that one Palestinian was killed, and another wounded by Israeli military fire in the al-Mintar area, east of the Ash-Shujaeyya neighborhood, east of Gaza City.

Dr. Ashraf Al-Qodra, spokesperson of the Ministry of Health in Gaza, stated that resident Ibrahim Suleiman Mansur, 26 years of age, was shot by a live round, in his head, and died of his injury.

Al-Qodra added that another Palestinian, 21 years of age, was moderately injured by a live round in his right leg.

The two were collecting gravel to be used in construction, due to the lack of construction materials resulting from the illegitimate Israeli siege on Gaza.

There have been dozens of casualties among the Palestinians in areas close to the border in Gaza, due to the Israeli siege and the ongoing restrictions which prevent Palestinians from working or entering their own lands, close to the border fence.

The Israeli attacks and violations include attacking Palestinian fishermen and fishing boats in Gaza waters, and even on the shore..
