Israeli Troops Attack Gaza Protests, Target Ambulances, Journalists
Israeli troops launched an offensive Saturday, September 23, against Palestinians, who were engaged in peaceful protests alongside the separation fence east of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Local Palestinian sources reported that Israeli troops fired live bullets and toxic tear gas bombs at the protesters near the separation fence east of Malaka camp, east of Gaza City.
Israeli armed units reportedly fired toxic tear gas canisters on ambulances and journalists at Malaka camp.
The protesters reportedly raised the Palestine flag and chanted slogans condemning Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people.
They additionally rallied for the resistance against the Israeli occupation and expressed solidarity with the Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem, who face mounting Israeli assaults and restrictions as they safeguard the holy city and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
These protests also responded to the ongoing Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip and in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners incarcerated in Israeli prisons.
