Syrian media sources confirmed that Israeli soldiers shot and killed
on Sunday 24 protesters who gathered on the Syrian side of the border
of the Israeli occupied Golan Heights marking the Naksa Day, while at
least 350 were injured.
Thousands of Palestinian refugees and supporters marched near the
border marking the Naksa, the day Israel the illegally arrested the
rest of Palestine in 1967.
The protesters were demanding their right to return to their homeland
when the Israeli forces opened fire at them. At least eight of the
wounded are in serious conditions.
Eyewitnesses told media agencies that the Israeli army used live
ammunition, gas bombs and and phosphorous munition, and that the
soldiers were directly aiming at the protesters leading to this large
number of casualties.
The army even set ablaze several areas near the border fence in at
attempt to prevent the protesters from marching to the border,
A 23-year-old woman, identified as Enas Shreitih, from Al Yarmouk
refugee camp in Syria was also among the killed by Israeli fire. She
is originally from Yatta city, near the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
Meanwhile, the Hamas-led government of Ismail Haniyya in Gaza
announced mourning following the deadly Israeli military attack
against the protesters in the Golan, and said that all victims are
the sons and daughters of Palestine who refuse to remain in exile
while Israel occupies their homeland.
