More than 50 Palestinian protesters injured by Israeli forces in Gaza

Israeli forces have attacked anti-occupation protests taking place near the fence between the besieged Gaza Strip and the occupied territories, leaving more than 50 Palestinians injured.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) The Gazan Health Ministry said 55 people were injured by Israeli forces during the 74th Friday protest.

 

Twenty-nine of the wounded people were injured by live fire, Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesman for the ministry, said on his official Twitter account.

 

The rallies have been held every week since March 30 last year. The Palestinians want the return of those driven out of their homeland by Israeli aggression.

 

Israeli troops have killed at least 307 Palestinians since the beginning of the rallies and wounded more than 18,000 others, according to the Gazan Health Ministry.

 

In March, a United Nations (UN) fact-finding mission found that Israeli forces committed rights violations during their crackdown against the Palestinian protesters in Gaza that may amount to war crimes.

 

Gaza has been under Israeli siege since June 2007, which has caused a decline in living standards.

 

Israel has also launched three major wars against the enclave since 2008, killing thousands of Gazans each time and shattering the impoverished territory’s already poor infrastructure.
