Israeli forces wound nearly 100 Gazan protesters

Israeli forces have attacked Palestinians taking part in the weekly “Great March of Return” rallies, injuring 98 Gazan protesters, according to the Gazan Health Ministry.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna)  The Gazan Health Ministry also said that 49 of the injured protesters had sustained bullet wounds from Israeli live fire.

 

Four paramedics were also among the wounded.

 

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

 

Israeli soldiers have shot and critically wounded a Palestinian child in the northern parts of the occupied West Bank.

 

Israeli troops have killed at least 305 Palestinians since the beginning of the rallies and wounded nearly 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.
