6 Palestinians injured by Israeli live fire in Gaza clashes

GAZA (Ma'an) -- Six Palestinians were reportedly injured with live fire in clashes with Israeli forces east of Gaza City’s al-Bureij refugee camp in the Gaza Strip during clashes on Friday.

Palestinian Spokesman for the Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, said six people were injured, including one critically, by Israeli live fire east of al-Bureij refugee camp, the site of frequent clashes with Israeli forces in recent months.

Al-Qidra said a 25-year-old was seriously injured and a 21-year-old was moderately injured, without giving further details about other injuries.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into reports of the clashes.

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.
