Occupation forces attack anti-blockade protesters at Gaza border

GAZA, Wednesday, September 1, 2021 (WAFA) – Dozens of Palestinian protesters suffered suffocation today as Israeli occupation forces attacked hundreds of protesters demonstrating for the second week at the east border of Gaza in protest of the 14-year Israeli blockade.

Soldiers stationed along the borderline opened gunfire and teargas at the protesters to disperse them, causing several cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.

Palestinians in Gaza have been demonstrating near the border for over two weeks to raise their voice against the 14-year Israeli blockade of the coastal enclave.

At least one fatality and 80 injuries have been reported among Palestinian protesters during the ongoing border protests during the last two weeks.
