MOH: 93 Palestinians injured during Gaza protest

Oct. 2, 2018 11:46 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 3, 2018 11:51 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Almost 100 Palestinians suffered injuries at the northern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Monday, as protesters participated in the naval march setting off from the Gaza seaport against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that 93 Palestinians were injured, including 37 injured by Israeli live ammunition.

Israeli forces opened fire directly targeting medical crews and ambulances that attempted to reach the area to provide medical aid to those injured.

A Ma'an reporter said that tensions increased during the naval march when Palestinian protesters began to set tires on fire to blur the vision of Israeli snipers deployed at the northern Gaza border; Israeli naval forces then heavily and repeatedly fired rubber-coated steel bullets towards protesting crowds.

Many attempts have been made throughout the years to draw the public's attention to and break the on-going siege of the Gaza Strip whether via ships attempting to sail into Gaza or ships attempting to sail from Gaza.
