The price of being a Gazan

The following story contains little concrete information but I heard during my time in Gaza that Palestinian civilians living near the border with Israel were routinely shot and attacked by Israeli troops:

One Palestinian was killed and another wounded on Monday evening by Israeli soldiers’ gunfire in northern Gaza Strip, Palestinian medics and witnesses said.

Gaza emergency chief Mo’aweya Hassanein said that the Israeli army informed the Palestinian side that one Palestinian was shot dead and another was moderately injured near the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahia.

Witnesses said that two Gaza young men approached an area in al-Atatra neighborhood north of the town, not far from the border between northern Gaza Strip and Israel, adding that Israeli soldiers stationed there opened fire at them.
