Several Palestinians injured by IOF gunfire in east Gaza protests
Israeli media report that two fires were recorded in one of the forests of the western Al-Naqab as a result of incendiary balloons launched from Gaza.
Palestinian activists from the Gaza Strip launched on Wednesday several incendiary balloons toward the Gaza Envelope illegal Israeli settlements, during demonstrations over the dire living conditions that Gazans are subjected to due to the years-long unlawful siege imposed by the Israeli occupation on the Strip.
Israeli media reported that two fires were recorded in one of the forests of the western occupied Al-Naqab as a result of incendiary balloons launched from Gaza.
Concurrently, the Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that two citizens were injured by Israeli occupation forces’ gunfire east of the Gaza Strip, while others suffered from suffocation as a result of tear gas canisters fired by occupation forces as they attempted to suppress the demonstrations.
This comes after Israeli occupation aircraft bombed on Tuesday a Palestinian Resistance site in the Gaza Strip.
Gazans resort to flying incendiary balloons as a means of putting pressure on the Israeli occupation in light of the ongoing restrictions on the Strip and the difficult conditions experienced by more than two million Palestinians as a result of the siege.
According to a local source, dozens of Palestinian youths gathered in eastern Gaza and Khan Yunis and engaged in confusion activities, burning tires, raising Palestinian flags, and challenging Israeli occupation forces as part of demonstrations that have become a daily scene in the eastern Gaza Strip.
On Tuesday, Israeli media reported that a number of Palestinians crossed the Israeli-erected separation fence with the Gaza Strip and burned a military point used by Israeli occupation soldiers for sniper operations.
On Saturday, Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine agreed during a meeting held in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, to expand security escalation and enhance coordination between them.
So far, the Israeli occupation's suppression of the rightful demonstrations in Gaza led to the martyrdom of seven Palestinians and the wounding of more than 100 others, while the international community continues to turn a blind eye to the illegal Israeli siege imposed against the Strip since 2007.
