The ministry also confirmed that Israeli forces opened fire and injured 14 Palestinians east of the return camps in central Gaza.

According to reports, one of the injured is in critical condition.

A Ma’an reporter said that Israeli forces opened live fire towards hundreds of Palestinians who were peacefully protesting at the eastern fence separating Gaza from Israel.

Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes carried out two airstrikes also in central Gaza, targeting a group of Palestinian youths and injuring several of them.

The medical condition of the youths remained unknown.

For the past week, hundreds of Palestinian protesters, have been organizing, as well as participating in night protests, during which they set tires on fire and chant slogans through loudspeakers, while marching towards the border with Israel. These protesters are also known as the “Night Confusion” unit.
