Days of Palestine – Gaza
Israeli occupation forces decided, this evening, Sunday, to completely close the sea of the Gaza Strip to fishermen, because launching incendiary balloons from the Gaza Strip in response to the attacks and violations of Israeli forces in occupied Jerusalem.
The Hebrew Kan Channel reported that, following the launch of incendiary balloons and missiles, the Israeli occupation army decided to completely close the fishing area in the Gaza Strip.
More than 200 Palestinians were wounded outside the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem as Israeli police fired rubber-coated metal bullets, tear gas, and stun grenades towards rock-hurling protesters.
Tens of thousands of worshippers had earlier packed Islam’s third-holiest site on the final Friday of Ramadan and many stayed on to protest against Israeli plans to evict Palestinian families from their homes on land claimed by Jewish settlers in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem.
Palestinians have staged a series of sit-ins in the area in recent days denouncing Israeli orders for them to vacate their homes. Israeli security forces have attacked the sit-ins using skunk water, tear gas, rubber-coated bullets, and shock grenades. Dozens of Palestinians have been arrested.
