UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — On the border between the Gaza Strip and the occupied territories, Israeli troops injured at least 60 Palestinians who had participated in demonstrations to mark the 71st anniversary of the “Nakba”, the occupation of Palestine and the creation of Israel, announces the Ministry of Health of the Palestinian Autonomous Authority.

On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers attacked thousands of Palestinians who had gathered in the eastern Gaza Strip. When protesters arrived east of al-Boreidj refugee camp, the Israeli military attacked them with rubber bullets and tear gas canisters. Several demonstrators were injured during the attack, including a young man with a rubber bullet and another man with a chest injury.

Israeli soldiers attacked protesters near al-Awda camp in eastern Gaza City but also east of Khan Younes (southern Gaza Strip).

The Israeli army has installed dozens of snipers in posts or on the hills to target Palestinian protesters.

In addition, Israeli naval vessels fired live bullets and rubber-coated steel bullets at Palestinian fishermen in Gaza’s territorial waters.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, 305 Palestinians, including 59 children, 10 women, 3 doctors and 2 journalists, have been killed since 30 March 2018, that is since the events of the Great Return.
