Israeli aggression kills Palestinian, injures others in eastern Gaza
Israeli occupation forces kill and injure Palestinians via live ammunition during protests in the Gaza Strip objecting to the blockade that has been imposed on the Strip for 17 years.
Israeli Occupation Forces killed a Palestinian and injured others during its aggression on demonstrators who participated in marches extending along the east of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.
The Israeli occupation forces shot and killed a young Palestinian man, Youssef Salem Youssef Radwan, along the east of Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip, and injured others to varying degrees, Palestinian health authorities confirmed.
Medical teams treated dozens of injuries at the site of the protests after IOF fired tear gas canisters at the demonstrators.
Furthermore, in Khan Yunis, the Palestinian Civil Defense extinguished a fire that broke out in one of the farms which was caused by an Israeli gas canister.
Enraged Palestinians set rubber tires on fire in protests against the Israeli blockade on the Strip after a local group named the Youth of the Uprising called for popular marches along the separation fence in eastern Gaza.
On Sunday, hundreds of Palestinians from Gaza headed to the separation fence to participate in protests as part of the "Youth of the Uprising" activities, condemning the Israeli settlers' invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the forcing out of Muslim worshipers from the holy site.
The IOF deployed heavily armed forces, including snipers, along the separation fence to disperse protestors, as the youth retaliated against the attempted suppression.
On Monday, Israeli media reported that the Israeli security and military establishment is preparing for the possibility of resumed rocket launches from the Gaza Strip. The reports noted that the continued closure of the Erez Crossing is making this possibility more likely.
The reports also indicated that a decision will be made in the coming hours to open the Beit Hanoun Crossing with Gaza, which was closed for another 24 hours on Monday. The Beit Hanoun Crossing is used for pedestrian and vehicle traffic, while the Kerem Shalom Crossing is used for transporting goods between Palestinian territories occupied in 1948 and the Gaza Strip.
The closures can have a severe impact on the Palestinian economy and population, as the occupation further restricts the movement of people and goods.
