Six Palestinians Injured with Israeli Live Fire in Gaza Clashes

Ramallah, – Six Palestinians were reportedly injured with live fire in clashes with Israeli forces east of Gaza City’s al-Bureij refugee camp in the Gaza Strip during clashes, Ma’an News Agency reported.

Palestinian Spokesman for the Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, said six people were injured, including one critically, by Israeli live fire east of al-Bureij refugee camp, the site of frequent clashes with Israeli forces in recent months.

Al-Qidra said a 25-year-old was seriously injured, and a 21-year-old was moderately injured, without giving further details about other injuries.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have crowded near the borders with Israel nearly every Friday to show solidarity with what Palestinians in Gaza have termed the “Jerusalem Intifada” taking place in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

More than 1,500 Gazans have been injured by Israeli forces since the start of 2015, the vast majority during clashes that broke out with the Israeli military during protests since October, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
