109 protesters injured by Israeli gunfire at Gaza border

Gaza, (UNA-OIC) - At least 109 Palestinians, including four children and nine women, were injured by gunfire and others suffocated from teargas after Israeli soldiers attacked them while they were partaking in the continuing Great March of Return protests along the Gaza-Israel border, medical sources said.

Among the wounded, three were critically injured by gunshots in the head, while others sustained physical injuries.

Other protesters also suffocated when the Israeli soldiers fired teargas canisters at the protesters who, despite a hot Ramadan day, continued to protest peacefully along the eastern border of the Strip, demanding their right of return to their pre-1948 homes in historical Palestine.

The protesters burnt damaged tires near the border to disrupt the visibility of the Israeli soldiers, who used to open gunfire at the protesters, despite the fact that they do not pose a life threat to the soldiers.

Over 120 Palestinians were killed and thousands injured since the outbreak of the Great March of Return protests at Gaza border on March 30.
