GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — At least 22 Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces’ gunfire as they suppressed the 20th weekly naval march in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, on Monday afternoon.
Medical sources confirmed that 22 Palestinians were injured, 3 of whom were injured with Israeli live bullets and 19 with rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas suffocation.
Palestinian protesters gathered at the northern borders of the Gaza Strip to take part in protests in an attempt to break the siege imposed on the Gaza Strip.
Israeli war boats opened live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas bombs at Palestinian protesters and boats attempting to break the siege.
Twenty boats, along with hundreds of Palestinian protesters, had set off from the Gaza seaport towards the Israeli “Zikim” beach.
Many attempts have been made throughout the years to draw the public’s attention to and break the ongoing siege of the Gaza Strip whether via ships attempting to sail into Gaza or ships attempting to sail from Gaza.
