Palestinians suffocate as Israeli forces attack anti-blockade protest along southern Gaza border

QAZA, Wednesday, August 25, 2021 (WAFA) - At least three Palestinians suffocated today by tear gas as Israeli forces attacked a peaceful rally held along the southern Gaza borderline to the east of Khan Younis city, in condemnation of the 14-year-old blockade that Israel has imposed on Gaza since 2007, said sources.

WAFA correspondent reported on witnesses as saying Israeli soldiers stationed at watchtowers along the borderline area to the east of the Gaza Strip fired a barrage of tear gas canisters toward the rally, causing at least three people to suffocate. They were treated at the scene.

A Palestinian injured in protests along Gaza’s eastern border succumbed to his wounds early morning today.
