3 Palestinians in Gaza Shot, Injured in Nakba Day Protest

Three Palestinians were injured by live fire during a Nakba Day demonstration in the Gaza Strip on Friday, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli soldiers opened fire on peaceful demonstrators east of Gaza City, hitting three men in the legs.

Dozens of Palestinians were taking part in the march to commemorate the 67th anniversary of the mass displacment of Palestinians during Israel’s creation.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma’an there were “about 100 rioters in the area” during the incident, confirming three direct hits by live fire after Israeli forces opened fire at the lower extremities of five individuals who approached the “security fence,” and did not halt on order of the Israeli forces.
