Two Palestinians were injured today, by Israeli gunfire, east of Bureij refugee camp, in the central Gaza Strip, according to WAFA correspondence.
The two were injured when Israeli soldiers opened fire at protesters at the border fence with Israel.
The two were taken to hospital for treatment.
Israeli forces opened heavy fire towards Palestinians during the â€śNight Confusionâ€ť protest, east of Gaza City, on late Monday.
According to local Ma’an sources, dozens of Palestinians gathered to the east of the al-Breij refugee camp, in central Gaza, to protest against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.
Sources added that protesters ignited a number of rubber tires on fire near the security border fence with Israel and threw rocks at Israeli forces.
Israeli forces repeatedly fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs towards large groups of protesters.
For several weeks, hundreds of Palestinian protesters, have been organizing, as well as participating in night protests, during which they set tires on fire and chant slogans through loud speakers, while marching towards the border with Israel. These protesters are also known as the “Night Confusion” unit.
