GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — At least three Palestinian citizens were injured on Monday evening when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) violently quelled a peaceful protest on northern Gaza coast.
Gaza Ministry of Health said that three Palestinians were injured and transferred to the hospital after the IOF attacked the peaceful protesters with live ammunition and teargas.
The Palestinian reporter said that hundreds of Palestinians took part in the coast protests, which have been lately a major part of the Great March of Return, to call for lifting the siege.
The National Movement to Break the Siege over the past months has launched many flotillas in an effort to break the 13-year-long blockade imposed on Gaza. All of them were intercepted and seized by Israel’s navy forces.
Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on 30 March launched major border demonstrations called the Great March of Return in a bid to highlight the Palestinian refugees’ right of return and pressure Israel to lift the blockade.
