GAZA, Palestinian paramedics on Saturday evacuated the body of a Palestinian old man, who was killed by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) to the north of Gaza Strip on Friday night.
Director of the health ministry's ambulance and emergency Dr. Muawiya Hasanein said that the paramedics recovered the body of a 65-year-old man east of Jabalia north of the Strip.
The Israeli liaison had informed the ambulance department that a Palestinian was killed in that area, Hasanein added.
IOF troops had raided the area backed by armored vehicles and bulldozed Palestinian fields on Friday night.
Meanwhile, Jewish settlers assaulted Palestinian shepherds in the Jordan Valley in the West Bank on Friday night and took away some of the sheep as part of their routine attacks on Bedouins in the area to block the sheep grazing, local sources reported on Saturday.
