Israeli Forces Injured Over 20 Palestinians Protesting Against Israeli Maritime Blockade On Gaza

On November 5th, Israeli forces injured more than 20 Palestinians during a demonstration against Tel-Aviv’s decade-long maritime blockade on Gaza.

Palestinians organized a protest in support of a new flotilla titled “Freedom Ship 15” that set sail from the port of Gaza in an attempt to go through the Israeli maritime blockage. Israeli forces fired tear gas and live ammunition at the crowd.

PressTV reported that approximately 40 fishing boats joined the flotilla, organized by Gaza’s National Committee for Breaking the Siege. The flotilla sailed to the northern coastal border of the Gaza Strip, however it was reportedly forced ashore by Israeli forces.

Those injured were transferred to the Indonesian and al-Shifa hospitals to receive the necessary medical treatment; their conditions were reported as moderate.

There has been frequent bloodshed during the weekly Palestinian protests titled “The Great March of Return” that began on March 30th. Palestinian protesters demand the right to return for those driven out of their homeland.

Organizers of the November 5th protest said that “the march of return will not stop until the fulfillment of all its goals, first and foremost the lifting of the siege completely from the Gaza Strip and end the suffering of two million besieged Palestinians.”

The committee stressed that the marches are organized, in order to “secure all basic human rights for the Palestinian people, including freedom, self-determination, and the right to establish an independent Palestinian state with occupied East Jerusalem as its capital.”

The Gaza clashes reached their peak on May 14, on the eve of the 70th anniversary of Nakba Day (Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with the US embassy relocation from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem, after Donald Trump announced that US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

More than 180 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces during the almost-7 months the protests have been taking place. Also, nearly 20,000 Palestinians have also sustained injuries.

The Palestinians are being pressured from every direction in recent months, with both Israel and the US attempting to force them into a two-state solution that doesn’t cater to their interest.

Hawks in the Israeli leadership such as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman continue supporting the idea that a large-scale intervention in Gaza and the dealing of a “crushing blow” to Hamas is a necessary prerequisite for any lasting peace.

    After ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorists the next number is of Israeli terrorists. As the fake state of ISIS from US and NATO forces vanished similarly the fake state of Israel from US and NATO will vanish. US and NATO both butcher organizations evolved from cows to cats. LOL

    The Israeli butchers all airports are under strict observation by Syrian, Russian and their allies. Each and every action of Israeli terrorists in Palestine are now recording with Russian and Syrian aerospace forces.

    Ghandi’s method doesn’t work at all. The only thing that would work is to turn EVERY civilian into a soldier armed with absolutely anything, then launch an overwhelming attack on the enemy all at once. It is do it or die.

      You are aware that Israelis tightly control everything coming into Gaza?

      There isn’t much to be armed with except a tin can at best…

    Why do Western Nations support the ORIGINAL nazis?

    They worship a Tribal WAR GOD …..
    They instigated the Roman pogroms against the first Christians.
    They instigated Muslims to attack peaceful Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land which lead to the Crusades..
    Donmah/Turkish Jews instigated the Armenian holocaust.
    Jewish Bolsheviks engineered the Ukrainian HOLOMODOR, a HOLOCAUST of 60millions of Christians..
    Dump the YOKE of “WWII guilt” ……. Jews are conducting TWO genocides RIGHT NOW
    Jews instigate and aggravate the genocidal muslum invasion of Christian Europe to clear population so Israel can steal MORE land for “GREATER” Israel…..
    We are witnessing the SECOND, slow motion, Israeli SHOAH of the People of Palestine..
    They brag about the First SHOAH the Canaanites/Amorites/Philistines/Midianites/PALESTINIANS who were in PALESTINE long before ABRAHAM passed through from Babylon/Ur ……Israel’s “claim” to Palestine is based entirely on War Crimes and GENOCIDE.

    For 70+ years scorn and guilt has been used to destroy Western Christianity by the very people who ORIGINATED genocide.
    “The Holocaust is the Holy Grail of white guilt.”
    The Jews BRAG about and SELF DOCUMENT THEIR “holocausting” others and then “PLACE A YOKE” on Gentiles for SUPPOSEDLY doing the exact same thing to them.
    Everything they claim the nazis did is an EXACT COPY of their own self-recorded acts/history..
