Gaza1Apr2GAZA (PNIC):-Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Tuesday opened live fire at a group of Palestinians for allegedly approaching the border fence between Gaza and Israel, shooting and moderately injuring two young men.

Local sources said that Israeli forces stationed at military watchtowers along Gaza borders fired live ammunition at the Palestinians claiming they got too close to the border fence to the north of Beit Lahiya, in the northern Gaza Strip, injuring one in the leg while another was wounded to the east of Breij refugee camp in central Gaza Strip.

Both young men were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment and their condition was described as moderate.

Palestinians in Gaza have been marching peacefully since 30th March along Gaza's eastern borderline for their right of return. Dozens have been killed and thousands injured as a result of Israel's use of lethal force against the unarmed protesters.
