Israeli forces opened fire on dozens of protesters marching on the eastern border of the Gaza Strip near Khan Younis on Sunday.
Witnesses said that Israeli forces opened fired on the protesters as they neared the border, adding that no injuries were reported.
The protest was called in opposition to the Israeli-administered blockade of the coastal strip as well as to delays in reconstruction.
Protesters were also commemorating the 39th Palestinian "Land Day."
Adham Abu Salima, spokesman for a local activist group, the National Committee for Breaking the Siege and Reconstruction, told Ma'an the protest had been called to mark "refusal" of the blockade and to stand up for Gazan families whose homes are in ruins. more
