Israeli forces kill Palestinian farmer in Gaza during temporary truce

Israeli forces killed a Palestinian farmer in the Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza on Sunday, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

The killing of the Palestinian farmer comes on the third day of the temporary truce.

Meanwhile, the killing of the Palestinian farmer in Gaza is starting to cast doubts on the third day of the truce and the prisoner-captive exchange between Israel and Hamas.

There has not yet been any comment from Israel on the killing, however fears are growing that it could jeopardise the third phase of plans to swap captives held in Gaza for Palestinian prisoners.

A senior Palestinian source said that Sunday’s phase looked “complicated,” the Reuters reported. Asked by Reuters if the farmer’s killing could delay a third batch of releases, the source replied: “I don’t know.”

According to Al Jazeera, Israeli officials have been quoted anonymously saying it might be another nerve-racking night with regards to the captives and prisoner exchange.
