Israeli forces shot, on Wednesday afternoon, two Palestinian young men, and caused many others to sustain inhalation injuries, during demonstrations held at various sites, along the eastern border regions of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Media sources said that hundreds of Palestinian young men gathered near the separation fence, east of Gaza City, in the northern part of Gaza, and east of Rafah and Khan Younis, in the southern part.
Israeli soldiers, positioned in military barracks and armored military vehicles, fired many live rounds and tear gas canisters at Palestinian demonstrators.
Sources reported that two young men were shot and injured with live rounds, while others suffered the toxic effects of tear gas inhalation.
Palestinian youths in Gaza have been gathering along various points along the eastern border every day since September 13, in support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to protest the inhumane siege imposed on the Gaza Strip since 2007.
On Tuesday, Israeli soldiers shot 11 Palestinians, including children, in demonstrations along the eastern border of the besieged Gaza Strip, and caused many others to suffer the toxic effects of tear gas inhalation.
