Five Palestinians Injured in Clashes near Gaza

GAZA, October 13, 2015 (WAFA) – At least five Palestinians, including a reporter, were injured with live ammunition fired at them by Israeli army during  clashes at Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing points, north of Gaza, on Tuesday, according to local sources.

WAFA correspondent said the clashes – which is still ongoing – came as part of  the recent Palestinian uprising against the ongoing Israeli escalated aggression against Palestinians and holy sites, particularly Israel’s continued assaults against al-Aqsa mosque.

He said the injured, including a youth who was shot in the head, were transferred to hospital for medical treatment.

Last Monday night, 11 Palestinians were injured by either live ammunition or by suffocating due to teargas inhalation during clashes with the Israeli army forces to the east of Bureij refugee camp near Gaza borderline.

Youth activists in Gaza have been organizing protests at Gaza-Israel borderline checkpoints in support of the Palestinian uprising in the West Bank.
