Israeli occupation forces once again used force to disperse unarmed Palestinian protesters in the besieged Gaza Strip today injuring dozens.
Thousands of demonstrators marched near the fence separating Gaza from Israel in what has been dubbed the “Friday to resist normalisation”, reaffirming Palestinians’ absolute rejection of normalising relations with the occupation state.
Occupation forces fired bullets and tear gas canisters at demonstrators, injuring a number of them and causing other to duffer suffocation.
Palestinians have been holding weekly protests I the Gaza Strip since 30 March calling for an end to the stifling siege which has been in place for nearly 12 years, and for their right to return to the homes from which their families were forced out in 1948 to make way for the creation of the state of Israel.
Israel’s oppressive policies against the peaceful demonstrators has lead to the death of 256 and injured some 30,000 more.
