The Israeli occupation forces fired live bullets and tear gas canisters at Palestinians in a march today, Wednesday, near the Gaza Strip's barbed-wire barrier.
The Israeli occupation troops fired live bullets and tear gas canisters at protestors who marched along the Gaza Strip's barbed barrier with the occupied areas, carrying the slogan "Seif al-Quds will not be sheathed."
ودعت الفصائل في القطاع، الشعب الفلسطيني للمشاركة في المهرجان الشعبي السلمي بعنوان "سيف القدس لن يغمد"، اليوم بعد صلاة العصر مباشرة، على أرض مخيم العودة شرق خانيونس. #سيف_القدس_لن_يغمد #فريق_مجاهدون pic.twitter.com/3tpJjDlK9x— رضوانة محمد (@redwanmohammad9) August 25, 2021
Citizens went to the return camp east of Khan Yunis to join the mass march in support of Al-Quds (Occupied Jerusalem) and to demand the easing of the blockade on Gaza.
Muhammad al-Hindi, the leader of the "Islamic Jihad" movement, spoke on behalf of the national and Islamic action factions declaring that, "We stand today to tell the enemy who owns weapons, planes, printers, and partners that you have no future in Palestine because it is ours and it will remain ours."
Al Hindi added that they will not pay heed to the enemy's threats, adding that the Palestinian people are united and the resistance is unified to safeguard the people.
The "Islamic Jihad" commander stated that "the Al-Aqsa fire will not be doused until the occupation is removed," emphasizing that "the enemy cannot have peace while blocking Gaza from receiving medicine and food."
The commander detailed that the resistance manufactures their weapons with their own hands and will not hesitate to defend their people and sanctities.
The leader of the "Islamic Jihad" movement expressed that the struggle is ongoing and will not end as long as aggression maintains against the people in Al-Quds and al-Aqsa, and as long as Gaza is besieged.
Suhail al-Hindi, a member of "Hamas", declared that "our message to the people of the West Bank and Jerusalem is that we will not be patient with the occupation's damage and the pain endured by our people." He emphasized that the city of Al-Quds will not be divided spatially nor temporally and that Gaza's message is to lift the siege imposed on the residents, and the current reality will be rejected.
This morning, Osama Khaled Duaij (32 years), from the Jabalia refugee camp, was martyred in the al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza. The young Palestinian succumbed to wounds he sustained after Israeli occupation forces shot him during a peaceful demonstration east of Gaza City.
Days ago, activists on social media circulated a video depicting a Palestinian youth shooting an Israeli soldier, at point-blank range through a hole in the cement wall at the eastern border of Gaza city.
The Israeli army confirmed that one of its troops was seriously injured after being shot from Gaza, and was transferred to a hospital for treatment.
