Israeli forces attacked, on Monday, Palestinian demonstrators who gathered along the eastern border between Gaza and the state of Israel, shooting two with live rounds, and injuring ten others, the Ministry of Health confirmed.

Palestinian citizens in Gaza, gathered along the border, east of Gaza City, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, to commemorate the arson attack against the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, 54 years ago.

Hundreds of Palestinians gathered in a non-violent demonstration, when occupation forces opened fire at them, in an attempt to suppress the march.

Soldiers fired live rounds, and tear gas canisters at the Palestinian protestors, shooting two with live rounds, at least one of whom was transported to hospital.

Ten others sustained inhalation injuries as a result of tear gas exposure, including a journalist, the Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed.

In 1969, an Australian man named Michael Dennis, entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and set fire to its eastern wing, causing major damage, taking years to repair.
