Israeli soldiers shot and injured, on Friday, at least five Palestinians in different parts of the Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses said clashes took place after Israeli soldiers, stationed across the border fence, opened fire on Palestinians protesting against the ongoing Israeli escalation.

Medical sources stated that one Palestinian was shot with live fire, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

The sources added that four Palestinians were injured east of the al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza, at least one of them with a live round, and was moved to the Al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al-Balah.

Many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
