The Israeli army today detained three youths from Gaza Strip when they were near the eastern fence separating besieged Gaza from Israel, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported on Saturday.
Israeli soldiers, stationed behind dirt mounds, detained the three youths when they got close to the fence.
What do Israeli soldiers want?
"They have already killed over 300 UNARMED #Palestinian protesters & wounded & maimed thousands more at the #Gaza fence during what #Palestinians referred to as the ‘#GreatMarchOfReturn’ between 2018 & 2020?"https://t.co/ZZkrjgfVVm#UntieOurHands

The Israeli army declared in a statement that its units detained three Palestinian youths, who were not immediately identified, when they crossed the fence from Gaza into Israel.
Gaza, with a population of 2 million, has been under a hermetic Israeli siege since 2006, when the Palestinian group Hamas won the democratic legislative elections in occupied Palestine. Since then, Israel has carried out numerous bombing campaigns and several major wars, that resulted in the death of thousands of people.
