Israeli soldiers shot and injured, Friday, three Palestinians with live fire, and caused many others to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation near the border fence, during protests that took place in different parts of the Gaza Strip.

Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Health Ministry in Gaza, said that three Palestinians suffered moderate wounds after the soldiers shot them with live fire, near the Nahal Oz military base, east of Gaza city.

Clashes also took place in several areas close to the border fence, in different parts of the coastal region, after the soldiers, stationed across the border fence, opened fire on dozens of protesters.
