Five Palestinian citizens suffered injuries on Saturday night during renewed night confrontations with Israeli soldiers in different border areas of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Medical sources told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that five citizens were injured after Israeli soldiers showered them with a hail of tear gas grenades and opened fire indiscriminately at them as they were rallying at night in border areas east of Khuza’a (south of Gaza) and al-Bureij refugee camp (central Gaza).
A PIC reporter in Gaza said that dozens of young men torched tires, used loudspeakers to play national songs and sirens, and flashed laser beams at soldiers behind the border fences.
Organizers say the night rallies are aimed at creating confusion among Israeli forces behind the border fences.
The night protests are part of a resurgence in border demonstrations following a brief lull after Egypt, Qatar and UN officials have failed to broker a long-term truce between Hamas and Israel.
