20 shot, injured, 1 critically, in Gaza clashes

Israeli forces shot and injured five Palestinians, one critically, during a demonstration on Monday in the Gaza Strip, which has seen near daily rallies since the beginning of the month. Dozens of Palestinian youths took part in the demonstration in Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza to rally against ongoing Israeli violations in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Witnesses said that Israeli forces opened fire at the demonstration from military towers injuring five, one critically.

Another demonstrator was also reportedly detained.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that "hundreds of rioters gathered near the border fence hurling rocks and rolling burning tires."

The spokesperson said that Israeli forces responded with "riot-dispersal means," without providing further details.
