On July 27, thousands of Palestinians protested near the separation fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip under the slogan “our martyrs children,” according to the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV.

As usually, the Israeli military attacked the protestors with live bullets and tear gas, which led to the death of two Palestinians “Ghazi Abu Mostafa” and “Yassin Abu Armana.” The Ministry of Heath of Palestine said that more than 100 other protestors were injured.
From its side, the Israeli military announced on twitter that a group of its soldiers were attacked by unknown gunmen north of the Gaza Strip during the protests. The shooting attack didn’t result in any casualties. However, warplanes of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) bombed an observation post of the Hamas Movement in response to the attack, according to the Israeli military.
An unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) of the IAF also fired a missile at a group of protestors who were launching arson balloons from the northern Gaza Strip into Israel. The Palestinian news agency Shehab said that no one was injured as result of the UCAV airstrike.
