Palestinians demonstrate near Israel-Gaza borders
Hundreds of Palestinians demonstrated on Wednesday near Gaza-Israel borders, protesting against Israeli measures in East Jerusalem and the no-go zone Israel declared along Gaza borders, Xinhua reported.
Leftists parties called for the peaceful demonstration, which inspired similar demonstrations in the West Bank as part of the peaceful public resistance.
The protestors convened near the Israeli army posts. Near Nahal Oz crossing in eastern Gaza city, Israeli soldiers intensively fired warning shots at tens of flag-waving Palestinians who approached an electric fence.
There have been no reports of casualties yet.
Some protestors held banners with slogans against Israel's recently-approved home building plan in East Jerusalem that the Palestinians see as a capital for their future statehood. Others chanted against the 300-meter wide buffer zone that Israel allocated along its western and southern borders with Gaza.
