GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured three Palestinians during the “Night Confusion” protest, near the border fence, east of Khan Younis in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on late Wednesday.

According to local sources, three Palestinians were shot and injured with live ammunition. They were immediately transferred to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

Hundreds of Palestinians gathered along the borders of Khan Younis, in southern Gaza, to protest against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.

Sources added that protesters ignited a number of rubber tires on fire near the Israel-Gaza border fence.

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

For several months, 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 loud speakers, while marching towards the border with Israel. These protesters are also known as the "Night Confusion" unit.
