A young Palestinian was injured Sunday in the north of the Gaza Strip by Israeli gunfire, a medical official said.
The 20-year-old man was shot in the leg by Israeli forces while collecting gravel near the Israeli border, Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qodra told Anadolu Agency.
The young man was transferred to hospital for treatment, the spokesman said, describing his injury as "slight."
Israel has established a 300-meter buffer zone along its border with the Gaza Strip.
Israeli forces frequently shoot at Palestinians who attempt to approach the border fence.
