At least four Palestinians, Tuesday, were shot and injured with live fire as Israeli forces attacked a peaceful rally near Beit Hanoun (Erez) border crossing with the besieged Gaza Strip, said WAFA sources.

Four Palestinians were admitted into the Indonesian Hospital in Beit Lahia, northern Gaza, with live-bullet wounds, after forces attacked the rally that was launched under the slogan: “Protecting the Rights of the Refugees”, in protest of US President Donald Trump’s administrative decisions to cut off financial aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

The four were shot in the foot area and their medical conditions were described as moderate.

This came hours after two Palestinians were killed in an Israeli airstrike east of Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip.
