GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Five Palestinians were injured by Israeli live ammunition, on Wednesday, east of Khan Younis, in southern besieged Gaza Strip.

According to medical sources, five Palestinians were injured during protests organized by the “Night Confusion” unit and transferred to nearby hospitals for medical treatment.

Large groups of Palestinian protesters arrived near the return camps along the eastern borders of Gaza as part of the daily protests against the nearly 12-year siege imposed by Israel.

Protesters ignited dozens of tires on fire.

Meanwhile, eyewitnesses told Ma'an that Israeli warplanes fired two missiles towards a group of Palestinian youths east of the al-Breij refugee camp in central West Bank.

The Israeli army claimed that warplanes targeted sites belonging to the Hamas movement after a number of incendiary balloons were launched from Gaza into southern Isarel.

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.
