GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- At least ten Palestinians were injured by Israeli ammunition, while others suffered tear-gas inhalation, as Israeli forces suppressed hundreds of Palestinian protesters in the naval march in Beit Lahiya in the besieged Gaza Strip, on Monday afternoon.

Medical sources confirmed to Ma'an that one Palestinian was injured with a live bullet in the leg in the Zikim area.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli forces opened fire at protesters approaching the border fence.

Israeli forces also fired tear-gas bombs causing many to suffer tear-gas inhalation.

The National Committee for Breaking the Siege had called upon Palestinians to take part in the 13th naval protest.

Dozens of ships has also sailed off the coast in an attempt to break the 12-year-long siege on Gaza.

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.
