 Israeli army forces on Friday opened fire on agricultural land in the southern Gaza Strip, but without causing any casualties, eyewitnesses have said.

Israeli forces stationed in Kissufim area on the border with the blockaded coastal enclave fired their machineguns in the direction of the southern Khan Younis city, an eyewitness told The Anadolu Agency.

The gunfire has slightly damaged agricultural crops in the area, he said.

The Israeli army, for its part, has yet to comment on the reported incident.

Palestinians living near the border complain that the Israeli troops stationed along the border are frequently opening fire across the border into their areas.

Earlier this year, Israel and the Palestinian groups signed a cease-fire agreement that ended Israel's seven-week-long military onslaught on the coastal territory.

The onslaught left over 2,160 Palestinians dead and more than 11,000 injured – the vast majority of them civilians – in July and August.
