GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire and shot six Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday afternoon while they were taking part in a protest near the border, witnesses said.

Israeli forces reportedly opened fire at the group of Palestinians as they marched near al-Shuhada cemetery, near the so-called security buffer zone beside the Israeli border.

Medical sources said that the six were shot in their lower extremities and were in light to moderate condition.

The injured were subsequently taken to Kamal Adwan Hospital in Jabaliya city proper for treatment.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not return a request for comment.
