MOH: 80 Palestinians injured during naval march in Gaza

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Some 80 Palestinian protesters were injured, on Monday, during the 14th naval march at the northern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, 80 Palestinians suffered various injuries, 15 of whom were shot and injured by Israeli live ammunition, seven were injured by rubber-coated steel bullets, while dozens of others suffered from tear-gas inhalation.

The ministry denounced targeting medical crews and injuring two Palestinian paramedics as they were providing medical care to those injured along the northern borders of Gaza.

The ministry also called upon international organizations to intervene immediately and provide protection to medical crews.

One Palestinian was killed during protests on Monday, after some 15 boats had set off from the Gaza seaport against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege, however, were forced to return to the shore as Israeli naval forces opened fire at them.

The National Committee for Breaking the Siege, which organized the naval march, said that the "naval marches will continue until Palestinians in Gaza achieve their goals."

The committee added "The Palestinian people cannot accept the 'Deal of the Century' and "we tell the world that we will not trade our rights for bits of humanitarian solutions."

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.
