GAZA STRIP (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian in his twenties was injured with Israeli live fire in eastern Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

Gaza Ministry of Health spokesperson Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma’an that a 27-year-old was injured by Israeli forces in the arm in the northern Gaza Strip.

Al-Qidra said that the man was taken to the Beit Hanoun Hospital for treatment, where his condition was reported as moderate.

An Israeli army spokesperson said she was "not aware of anything unusual" in the besieged coastal enclave, and could not comment on the reason for Israeli live fire in Beit Hanoun.

Beit Hanoun is located near the northeastern border of the Gaza Strip, and has frequently been the site of violent clashes between Gazans and Israeli forces in recent months.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have crowded near the borders with Israel nearly every Friday to show solidarity with what Palestinians in Gaza have termed the “Jerusalem Intifada” taking place in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Dozens of Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip since the unrest spread in October, the majority shot dead during clashes on the Gaza-Israel border.

More than 1,500 Gazans have been injured by Israeli forces since the start of 2015, the vast majority during clashes that broke out with the Israeli military during protests since October, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
