At least 430 Palestinians have been wounded this Friday as a result of Israeli forces shooting and tear gas inhalation during the new protests in the Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian sources.

A total of 69 Palestinians have been shot and wounded, while the rest have been treated for respiratory poisoning, as reported by the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Local sources have detailed that among the wounded are three journalists, identified as Abdulrahman al Jatib - affected by gas inhalation -, Sulaiman Abu Zarifa - reached in one foot by a tear gas canister - and Hamza Shami - reached by one of those boats on one shoulder--

The Gazací Health Ministry has estimated at 45 Palestinians killed since the start of the protests on March 30, including journalists Yaser Murtaja and Ahmed Abu Husein, both shot by the Israeli forces.

For its part, the Israeli Army has confirmed through its account on the social network Twitter the downing of two unmanned devices that carried out "documentation missions" and has ensured that "there is no risk of leaking information."

According to information from the Israeli newspaper 'Yedioth Ahronoth', the apparatuses shot down are a 'Phantom 3' and a 'Matrice', which would have been hit by slingshots and slingshots by the demonstrators.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Raad al Hussein, accused the Israeli forces on April 30 of using "excessive force" to suppress demonstrations by Palestinians on the border of the Gaza Strip and assured that "no it has been once or twice, but repeatedly, "as the figures of the dead and wounded would demonstrate.

The demonstrations have so far gone through a total of five rounds of weekly protests that are expected to peak in mid-May, on the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding.

Israel considers the sometimes violent demonstrations an effort by the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) - which controls the Strip - to stoke hostility and provide coverage for possible attacks through the border fence.

The Israeli military response to the demonstrations has been criticized by various non-governmental organizations, and B'Tselem asked in early April the Israeli military to disobey orders to open fire on demonstrators.

"An order to open fire on unarmed civilians is absolutely illegal, the responsibility of issuing these illegal orders and their lethal consequences falls on the political leaders, and above all the prime minister, the defense minister and the head of the army," he said. the Israeli organization.

Thus, he stressed that "the use of real fire against unarmed people that do not pose a danger to anyone is illegal", while reiterating that "it is not permissible to order soldiers to open fire on people who approach the fence, the damage or try to cross it ".

The protesters claim the right of return to what is Israel today of the refugees - and their descendants - caused by the creation of Israel in 1948 and the subsequent war. The refugees make up the vast majority of the two million residents of Gaza, ruled by Hamas since 2007.
