Palestinian shot, injured by Israeli forces in Gaza border clashes

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian in ongoing clashes east of al-Buriej refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, the Gaza-based Ministry of Health said Wednesday.

Spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra, told Ma'an that a 20-year-old Palestinian was shot with live fire in the foot, and taken to Shuhada al-Aqsa hospital in moderate condition.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that "dozens of rioters" gathered along the border in central Gaza Strip, and that the "rioters breached the buffer zone and attempted to damage the fence multiple times."

The spokesperson said Israeli forces "repeatedly told the perpetrators to halt, and fired warning shots into the air," and that "when the crowd continued to advance, the forces acted to prevent the threat to nearby communities and fired on main instigators."

The spokesperson said "hits were confirmed" but could not specify how many Palestinians had been shot and injured.

On Tuesday, Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian, and injured nine others with live fire on during clashes on the border of northern and central Gaza.

On Friday, two Palestinians were killed and at least 100 others injured as Israeli forces opened fire at demonstrators in the Strip.

A week earlier, 12 Palestinians were killed in Gaza by Israeli forces, with 10 shot dead during demonstrations at the border and two killed, a two-year-old girl and her pregnant mother, in an airstrike.
