At least 23 Palestinians were injured yesterday by live bullets and many others by rubber-coated rounds as Israeli occupation forces attacked dozens of protesters taking part in the weekly Great March of Return at the Gaza-Israel border, according to medical sources.
Soldiers manning the separation fence fired live bullets and rubber-coated steel rounds at the protesters who gathered at many encampments along the border, injuring 23 by live bullets, some of them seriously, Palestinian WAFA news agency reported.
Others were also injured by rubber-coated rounds, while dozens of protesters suffered from inhalation of the teargas fired by the Israeli forces.
Some of the wounded were moved to hospital and many others were treated in the field hospitals. Over 310 Palestinians have been killed and about 18,000 others injured by Israeli forces since the start of the Great March of Return protests at the Gaza border on March 30 last year.
