Spokesman for Gaza Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qedra said that a Palestinian youth was moderately injured after being shot in the leg east of Gaza city.
Al-Qedra said that the injured youth was immediately transferred to al-Shifa Hospital for treatment.
He added that a child and a young man were also shot and injured east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip.
Israeli soldiers stationed at the border fence east of Gaza deliberately shoot at Palestinian civilians taking part in the Great March of Return. Since the border protests started in March, 154 Palestinians have been killed and over 17,000 injured. (PIC)
