Israeli forces shoot, injure two Palestinians in Gaza clashes

Oct. 31, 2015 10:32 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 31, 2015 10:32 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured two Palestinian men with live rounds during clashes that broke out east of al-Breij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip on Saturday, medics said.

The two Palestinians were both shot in their lower extremities and were described as being in moderate condition. Medics said they had been taken to the Shuhada al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al-Balah.

Witnesses told Ma'an they were shot when Israeli forces opened fire on a demonstration near the Gaze border fence.

On Friday, at least 17 Palestinians were wounded by live fire during demonstrations across the coastal enclave, while 19 others were reportedly injured by rubber-coated steel bullets and a further 10 suffered excessive tear gas inhalation.

At least 15 Gazans have been killed by Israeli forces during demonstrations this month, while two more -- a two-year-old and her pregnant mother -- were also killed in an Israeli airstrike on their home.
