Israeli soldiers shot, Tuesday, five Palestinians with live fire, and caused scores to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation, east of Deir al-Balah, in central Gaza.
Medical sources said the soldiers resorted to the excessive use of force against the nonviolent protesters, on Palestinian lands near the perimeter fence, east of Deir al-Balah.
They added that the soldiers shot five Palestinians with live rounds, and caused dozens to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.
The five injured Palestinians were rushed to the Al-Aqsa Hospital, in Deir al-Balah, while field medics provided the needed treatment to the residents who suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.
On Monday, the soldiers and the navy shot 29 Palestinians during a nonviolent flotilla procession from Gaza city shore towards the shore in northern Gaza, close to the Zikim Israeli controlled shore.
The Health Ministry in Gaza issued a statement denouncing the deliberate Israeli targeting of medics and ambulances with live fire, including the medical boats, and said that such violations are â€śacts of organized terrorism by the Israeli forces against medical teams performing their humanitarian duties.â€ť
