4 Palestinians Shot, Injured in Gaza’s Night Protests

Four Palestinians were shot and injured with Israeli live ammunition during Night Confusion protests along the eastern fence separating the besieged Gaza Strip from Israel, on late Monday.

Medical sources confirmed that one Palestinian was shot and injured in his foot, in Khan Younis, in southern Gaza. His medical condition was described as moderate.

Sources also confirmed that another Palestinian was shot and injured by Israeli forces in Rafah, in southern Gaza, while two other Palestinians were injured east of Jabaliya, in northern Gaza.

Hundreds of Palestinians gathered along the eastern fence of Gaza to protest against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.

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 loudspeakers, while marching towards the border with Israel. These protesters are also known as the Night Confusion unit.
