GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — Dozens of Palestinians were injured on Monday when the Israeli occupation forces opened fire at Palestinians marching in northern Gaza to support the new Freedom Flotilla that will attempt a journey from Gaza sea to break the siege.
Gaza Ministry of Health said that 49 Palestinians, including journalists and medics, were injured by Israeli live ammunition and teargas canisters.
A Palestinian reporter said that about 50 boats, carrying on board students and injured people, took part in the seventh Freedom Flotilla campaign launched from the Gaza Strip.
Member of Hamas’s Political Bureau Fathi Hammad praised the Palestinian people’s determination and bravery over the past months.
Hammad stressed that Palestinians in Gaza will continue their protests until they achieve their goals and restore their usurped rights.
Since 30th March, Palestinian citizens in Gaza have been protesting in five camps along Gaza’s border with the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories in what is called “Great March of Return”. A sixth camp will be installed starting Monday northwest of Gaza. (PIC)
