GAZA, Sunday, August 22, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli fighter jets attacked multiple sites in Gaza late last night, following an Israeli crackdown on hundreds of Palestinians who demonstrated near the Israeli perimeter fence surrounding the Gaza Strip to mark the 52nd anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Mosque arson of 1969.
WAFA correspondent said explosions were heard at several points in the besieged Gaza Strip after the attack, but said no casualties were reported thus far.
The Nuseirat region in the central regions of Gaza and the Al-Shati Camp in the coastal region were among locations that were hit.
Hours earlier, 41 Palestinians were wounded, two of them critically, by Israeli gunfire during the demonstrations held on the border of the blockaded Gaza Strip on the 52nd anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Mosque arson by an Israeli-Australian fanatic in 1969.
Among the two Palestinians critically injured was a 13-year-old boy who was shot in the head, the Ministry of Health said. It described most of the other injuries as moderate, including gun shots to limbs, backs and abdomens.
