Israeli forces repeatedly fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs towards the large groups of protesters.
For several weeks, 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.
