He added that dozens of others suffered tear-gas inhalation.

Some 30 boats, along with hundreds of Palestinians arrived to the northern border to participate in the 18th naval march.

Israeli forces fired live bullets, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas bombs towards Palestinian crowds while the Israeli navy opened fire at Gaza boats attempting to break the siege.

Member of the politburo of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), Talal Abu Tharifeh, said that naval marches would continue until their goals are achieved.

The National Committee for Breaking the Siege, organizer of the march, called on the United Nations, the European Union, and fellow Arab countries to immediately intervene and carry out their legal responsibilities to force Israel to end the occupation and break the siege.
