GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — Dozens of Palestinians were injured on Tuesday when the Israeli occupation forces attacked peaceful protesters on the coast north of Gaza.
The Ministry of Health said that 20 Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire and tear gas bombs.
Gaza coast protests have been a major part of the Great March of Return launched on 30 March 2018.
Member of the Higher National Committee of the Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege Khaled Abu Helal said that the peaceful protests in the Gaza Strip will continue in all possible ways until they achieve their goals, mainly breaking the blockade.
The Palestinians in the Gaza Strip since the start of the border protests have launched several flotillas of dozens of vessels toward Israeli-controlled water in a bid to break the siege. All boats were intercepted and those on board were arrested by the Israeli navy.
