GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — At least four youths were injured on Sunday evening when the Israeli occupation forces opened fire at the Palestinians taking part in the Great March of Return’s night protests at the border east of Gaza.
The PIC reporter said that four Palestinian youths were injured by live ammunition and teargas canisters east of al-Bureij refugee camp, in the middle area of the Gaza Strip.
According to the Palestinian reporters in the Gaza Strip, dozens of Palestinian youths marched late on Sunday along the borderline east of Gaza, burned car tires, launched fireworks and fire balloons over the fence, and sang national songs.
Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been protesting in the Great March of Return on a daily basis since 30 March. The border demonstrations are mainly aimed at shedding light on the Palestinian refugees’ right of return and pressuring Israel to lift the decade-long blockade.
Since the protests started 217 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army and over 22,000 injured.
