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

According to local sources, three Palestinians were shot and injured with live ammunition. They were immediately transferred to the Indonesian Hospital, in northern Gaza, for medical treatment.

Hundreds of Palestinians gathered along the borders of Beit Hanoun town, northeast of Gaza, to protest against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.

Sources added that protesters ignited a number of rubber tires on fire near the security border fence with Israel and threw rocks at Israeli forces.

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

Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes across eastern Beit Hanoun, targeting Hamas sites. No injuries were reported.

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.
