GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured at least three Palestinians during clashes east of the al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, as clashes there continued for the sixth consecutive day, the Gaza Ministry of Health said.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesperson for the ministry, said that Israeli forces shot and injured three Palestinians with live fire in eastern al-Bureij, leaving themin moderate condition.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not have information on an incident in the central Gaza Strip, but did report that dozens of "rioters" had breached the border fence and entered the so-called "buffer zone" in southern Gaza.

Israeli forces shot live fire at "main instigators," after the protesters ignored warnings tohalt, she said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that the three Palestinians were injured in al-Bureij as Israeli forces opened fire and launched tear gas at protesters.

The Ministry of Health called upon Palestinians to be cautious, as Israel uses live fire to suppress protests, and demanded that all concerned parties help to support the needs of the Gaza Strip with medical supplies.

Al-Qidra pointed out that nine Palestinians were killed and more than 300 were injured during clashes in the Gaza Strip since last Friday.

On Tuesday, at least 50 Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces during rallies in the northern and central Gaza Strip, three of which were seriously wounded, medics said.

A pregnant woman and her two-year-old daughter were killed on Sunday when an Israeli air strike caused their home to collapse in southern Gaza City.

The Israeli army said in a statement that the air strikes targeted "two Hamas weapon manufacturing facilities in the northern Gaza Strip" and made no mention of any deaths or damage to civilian homes.

The strikes were reportedly carried out in retaliation for a rocket fired from the blockaded coastal enclave late on Saturday night.

Nine Palestinians have been shot dead during demonstrations in the besieged enclave since Oct. 9 including two Palestinian boys, aged 13 and 15, who were shot dead during a rally in Khan Younis.

If Israel is good at air striking Gaza, how come they don't air strike Jerusalem and the surrounding areas. Because they can't. They stuffed their occupy territories with settlers, now Israel army has to fight them street to street and they are not doing too good.
