Two protesters injured at Friday Gaza border protests

Friday Gaza protests

At least two Palestinian protesters were injured by Israeli gunfire while dozens others suffocated from teargas after Israeli soldiers attacked them while they were partaking in the continuing Great March of Return protests along the Gaza border.

Two protesters were reportedly hit by live bullets in their feet. The two were later moved to hospital suffering moderate wounds.

Many others also suffocated when the Israeli soldiers fired teargas canisters at the protesters.

Earlier afternoon, thousands of Palestinians in the blockaded Gaza Strip have converged on the Gaza-Israel border fence for the ninth consecutive Friday to take part in ongoing rallies against the Israeli occupation.

Since March 30, Palestinians have been staging mass rallies along the border fence to demand the right of return to their homes in historical Palestine from which they were driven in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel.

Since the rallies began, at least 120 Palestinian demonstrators have been killed and thousands more injured by Israeli army gunfire, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
