Israeli forces shoot, injure Palestinian in Gaza night protests

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- One Palestinian was shot and injured with Israeli live fire during night protests, on Thursday, east of Rafah, in the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

Local medical sources confirmed to Ma'an that one Palestinian was shot and injured in his foot, while three others suffered from tear-gas suffocation during night protests organized by the “Night Confusion” unit, in southern Gaza.

Israeli forces repeatedly fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs at dozens of Palestinian protesters demonstrating against the nearly 12-year siege imposed by Israel.

Palestinians fired locally-made stun grenades and ignited dozens of rubber tires on fire near the Israel-Gaza security border fence.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that within ten minutes, about 30 locally-made stun grenades were fired at Israeli forces, who were stationed along the eastern border of Rafah.

No injuries were reported among Israeli soldiers.

For the past several nights, hundreds of Palestinian protesters, have been organizing, as well as participating in night protests, during which they set tires on fire and chant slogans through loud speakers, while marching towards the border with Israel. These protesters are also known as the "Night Confusion" unit.
