4 Palestinians shot, wounded at Gaza greenhouse

Armed Palestinian guards at a Gaza Strip greenhouse on the site of former settlement Netzer Hazani opened fire at a group of Palestinian laborers who approached the structure Monday, wounding four people, hospital officials said. The laborers approached the greenhouse overnight Monday after hearing rumors that the business' owner planned to fire workers. Amed al-Masri, general director of the company that operates about 2,700 greenhouses in Gaza, said there were no plans to dismiss workers and accused unknown elements of trying to sabotage the buildings. Police blocked off the greenhouse in the abandoned settlement of Nezer Hazani on Monday, and bloodstains were seen on the ground.
