6 injured in anti-siege marches near Gaza border areas

2 minors injured

6 Palestinians were injured Friday evening after being attacked by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) east of al-Bureij refugee camp and Jabalia town in the Gaza Strip.

Spokesman of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qedra, said that medical crews treated 5 injuries east of Jabalia and one injury east of al-Bureij.

Earlier, the PIC reporter said that the IOF soldiers deployed behind the security fence east of the Gaza Strip fired live bullets and tear gas canisters at the Palestinian youths demonstrating in the area.

Qedra reported that two minors aged 16 and 17 were shot in the head and leg respectively, describing the head injury as serious.

The area close to the fence separating the Gaza Strip and the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories witnesses regular demonstrations, especially on Fridays, protesting tightening the siege imposed on Gaza.
