Israeli forces injure 4 Palestinians in Gaza protests

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were injured during protests along the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, on predawn Monday.

A Ma'an reporter said that one Palestinian was shot and injured by Israeli forces east of the al-Breij refugee camp in central Gaza.

The injured Palestinian, who was not immediately identified, was transferred to the Shuhada al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al-Balah to receive medical treatment.

Three other Palestinians suffered from tear-gas inhalation and were provided treatment on the scene.

Large crowds of Palestinians arrived to the eastern borders of Gaza, set dozens of tires on fire, fired fireworks and switched on laser lights to blur the vision of Israeli snipers, while Israeli forces fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs.

The four Palestinians were reportedly part of the "Night Confusion" unit.

It is noteworthy that for the past month, 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.
