GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured four Palestinians during the “Night Confusion” protest, east of Gaza City, on late Tuesday.

According to local sources, four Palestinians were shot and injured with live ammunition, while dozens of others suffocated from tear-gas inhalation.

Sources added the injured Palestinians were transferred to hospitals for medical treatment.

Hundreds of Palestinians gathered along the eastern borders of Gaza City to protest against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege and ignited a number of rubber tires on fire near the security border fence with Israel.

Israeli forces repeatedly fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs towards the large groups of protesters.

For several weeks, 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.
